Fullam, one of the most influential Episcopal priests of his generation and a founder of the modern church renewal movement, died March 15. “A generation ago he was a hero,” said the Rt. Rev.

I feel truly blessed to serve as the new Priest-in-charge at the Church of the Advent. This is the third congregation that I have served since my ordination in 1996. From that date you can deduce that I am second career clergy (or a very aged thirty something). I completed two calls in Ohio and retired from full time ministry in 2010. I attended Western Michigan University in the hopes of being a high school teacher of speech and drama. I graduated during a year of a record glut in teaching candidates and received no contract offers, although I did meet my wife, Gaye.
Central Florida offers incredible diversity for those hearing a call to ministry. Learn about work opportunities in the Episcopal Church and our continuing education programs.
