By the Grace of God and the Consent of the People, Bishop Chip Edgar, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of South Carolina, will ordain The Rev. David Andrew Rowe to the Sacred Order of Priests on Friday, April 19, 2024 at 6 p.m. at St. Michael’s Church in Charleston. The Rt. Rev. Mark Lawrence will be the preacher for the service.


David is the Lower School Chaplain at Porter-Gaud School. His life pilgrimage began in Britain and has so far included a Biblical Studies BA (from the University of Sheffield), several years serving with Youth With A Mission (in Zimbabwe, England, and New Zealand), and writing a book called The Proverbs of Middle-earth about the wisdom and worldviews of JRR Tolkien’s invented peoples. Fortunate beyond words to marry into a Lebanese-American family in Charleston, he and his wife, Maria, have three children and nine chickens! He graduated from Trinity School for Ministry last summer with an MDiv, and has led worship music for 25 years, including at St. Michael’s, Charleston; St. John’s, Johns Island; and Good Shepherd, West Ashley – and he presently serves as a Deacon at Holy Trinity, Charleston. He became a Christian on February 26, 1986, when he was four, and Jesus has never let him down.
