The Rev. Wayne Rollins

Interim Rector

The Rev. Wayne Rollins was born and raised in West Virginia, 15 miles west of Charleston. A musician from an early age, he majored in Education, Music K-12, at West Virginia State College (now University). He then obtained a Master of Music Degree in Organ Performance at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey and served as an Organist/Choirmaster at various Presbyterian, United Methodist, Roman Catholic, and Episcopal churches. He has also taught in Catholic schools and at what is now Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio.

Later Fr. Wayne attended Ohio University, working toward a doctoral degree in the fine arts, but decided to leave that program and felt the call to attend seminary. He graduated from The Methodist Theological School of Ohio in 1997 and was ordained in that denomination as a deacon in 1996.

Having previously been confirmed in the Episcopal Church, the call to come home kept coming so he began discernment toward ordination in the Episcopal Church, which took place in 2004. Fr. Wayne has since served as a priest in West Virginia, Maine, and Southern Ohio dioceses, completed a residency in Clinical Pastoral Education, and served a few years as a pastor in an Evangelical Lutheran congregation.

Fr. Wayne joins us from St. John’s Episcopal Church in Greenville, Ohio.
