Meet our Interim Rector, the Reverend David H. Knight

David comes to us with nearly 44 years experience as a parish priest.  A life long- Episcopalian and grandson of an Episcopal Priest, the Reverend Franklin Knight,  David was ordained both deacon and priest in the Diocese of Western Massachusetts by Bishop Alexander D. Stewart in 1971. He has served as assistant, senior associate, and rector in congregations  both large and small in the dioceses of Western Massachusetts,  Virginia, and Dallas. For ten years, he served as senior associate at St. Stephen’s here in Richmond.  In 2005 he received training as an interim through the Interim Ministry Network training program.  After returning to Richmond from Saint Michael and All Angels in Dallas, Texas, he served as interim in two Richmond area congregations before being called to serve as priest associate at St. Mary’s Goochland.  In October of 2014 he accepted the call to serve as interim here at Epiphany. He began his ministry with us on Advent Sunday.  Among his passions for ministry are pastoral care and helping congregations prepare for the coming of a new rector, a process which involves assessing what needs to be done to putting the congregation on as strong a footing as possible for the advent of the new rector.

David and his wife Jeannie, a teacher,  raised four sons and have three grandsons.  They make their home here in Richmond with their Collie dog, Lady, and their Tonkinese cat, Beau Thai.
