The Reverend Christopher Miller, Rector
Reverend Christopher Miller is the new rector at the Church of Our Saviour having started with us on November 27, 2017. He comes to us from St. Anne’s Episcopal Church and Day School in Buckhead, where he served as Curate and Director of Family Ministries. Father Chris first got to know us when he and his wife moved to Atlanta. And, when he realized he was being called to the ministry, the parish sponsored him for discernment. Now he he has come full circle back to us, albeit in a very different role.
While Father Miller was at St. Anne's, in addition to his priestly duties, his focus was on growing and enriching the Family Ministries program. Whether it was leading Day School chapel, guiding the middle- and high-school youth on Sunday evenings for Episcopal Youth Community, or serving as a member of the clergy-laity pastoral care team, Fr. Chris’ experiences at St. Anne’s and his passion for formation, mission and outreach will wonderfully complement Our Saviour's liturgical and sacramental identity, which continues to form and inform us within our own community.
Fr. Chris possesses a strong sense of mission and outreach, which flows from a high sacramental theology that moves him not to be afraid to get his hands dirty, take risks and walk hand-in-hand as we encounter the living Christ together.
His background includes service in the U.S. Navy and he is a graduate of the Candler School of Theology. When he isn't working, Fr. Chris enjoys hiking Kennesaw Mountain and the surrounding trails with his wife Jenn and their son Gabriel, walking their dogs, reading, writing and appreciating every moment of family life.
