The Diocese Welcomes the Rev. John Garry Edwards
The Diocese welcomes the Rev. John Garry Edwards as the new rector of St. Mark's, Huntersville. Edwards most recently served as the rector of St Sebastian’s By-The-Sea, Melbourne Beach, in the Diocese of Central Florida. He also served as the dean of South East Deanery in the Diocese of Central Florida.
Edwards earned his M. Div. and Certificate in Spiritual Direction at The General Theological Seminary. His undergraduate degree is a B.A. from CUNY Brooklyn College in Public Communications and Marketing.
Prior to his ministry in the priesthood, Edwards worked for more than 30 years in the retail and mortgage banking industry and was the president of the American Cricket League. We welcome Edwards and his wife, Lisa, to North Carolina!
Everliving God, strengthen and sustain Garry, that with patience and understanding he may love and care for your people; and grant that together they may follow Jesus Christ, offering to you their gifts and talents; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
