It is with great joy that we announce that the Rev. Sean Duncan has accepted the call to be the rector of Trinity Episcopal Church. Rev. Duncan is committed to leading the Body of Christ by preaching and teaching the Bible, administering the sacraments, fostering parish community, and outreach. He joins us from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Shreveport, Louisiana, where he currently serves as Assistant Priest. His first service with us will be on Sunday, December 20th.
The search committee was originally attracted to Rev. Duncan because of the time and energy he put into St. Paul’s Children’s Ministry over the last few years, creating a three-year curriculum for their Wednesday night kids program (K-5th). When we heard his sermons, he struck us as someone filled with the Holy Spirit who would be willing and able to guide and challenge our parish. As we got to know him better, we felt more and more convicted that God had put him in our path for a reason. Rev. Duncan is an extremely intelligent man who brings both a passion and methodical approach to leadership - qualities we hope the parish will find as compelling as we do.
Rev. Duncan has an impressive CV. He has published several pieces of academic work and is proficient in Koine Greek, Hebrew, Latin, and German. This year he began a Ph.D. program at University of Edinburgh in Scotland (at a distance), focusing on the Anglican theologian Richard Hooker. He believes in staying true to Anglicanism while adapting to the methods of the future, such as utilizing newer forms of communication to reach the younger generation. Scholarship is one of the ways he believes he can serve the wider Church.
He has also served the Church through parish ministry by ministering to young families, children, college students, the elderly, and immigrants. He serves the entire congregation by directing Christian education at St. Paul’s in addition to his myriad other duties.
Rev. Duncan was born and raised in Atlanta and grew up Presbyterian. He attended Valdosta State University for college, Covenant Theological Seminary for his M.Div., and after confirmation in The Episcopal Church, Gordon-Conwell Seminary for a certificate in Anglican Studies. He was ordained as a deacon in 2017 and a priest in 2018. He has been at St. Paul’s since the summer of 2017. His previous ministry experience included working for a retreat center in Florida and a college ministry in Georgia.
We want to thank the congregation for your patience and trust in both the process and our abilities over the last nearly 10 months. We would also like to give thanks to Fr. Greer for stepping in the role of interim with poise and ownership; this would have been an arduous journey without your support. Our parish is looking forward to Rev. Duncan, his wife Amber, their children, Owen (5), and Annie (1) joining our Trinity family in just a few weeks.
