Meet our Priest - Fr. David
Father David Rose has served a the priest at St. Luke's since July 2013. Ordained in 2011, he is a graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary, and also happens to call Virginia home. He is married to Amy Rose, who loves to sing, loves children, and loves to bake and cook - not necessarily in that order. Together, Fr. David and Amy have four children - Jonathan, Micah, Elijah, and Isaac.
When he is not reading theology books, Fr. David enjoys juggling, drumming, and spending time outside depending on the month. If you asked, he would admit to loving science fiction and might even tell you that his favorite passage in the Bible is Philippians 2:5-11 - depending on the day of course; he has many favorite passages.
Meet our 2017 Vestry
The Vestry is the leadership of our church. Together with Fr. David, the Vestry has oversight of our finances, property and are also spiritual leaders in the congregation. Vestry members are elected by the church at our annual meeting in January and serve three year terms. St. Luke's Vestry for 2017 is:
