It is with great joy and excitement that the Vestry at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church would like to announce the Priest in Charge, Reverend Kedron Nicholson.
The Rev. Kedron Nicholson has 16 years of ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church joyfully helping all ages engage the Gospel through worship, education and service. She is a graduate of the University of Georgia, where she earned her degree in anthropology. She entered seminary at Virginia Theological Seminary, graduating in 2002 and was ordained deacon and priest in the Diocese of Atlanta.
The priesthood has taken her on an adventure she never could have dreamed. She has done mission work in El Salvador, Botswana, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Fiji and all over the United States. She is passionate about outreach and says that Matthew 25 is a guiding light in her life— Jesus said, “When you did it to the least of these, you did it unto me.” Philippians 4:4 is also central to her life, “Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say Rejoice!”
She has served a wide variety of parishes from rural to urban, large to small in all levels of leadership. She recently led a mid-sized parish in Florida, empowering them to navigate the challenge of a changing neighborhood. They achieved their goal of looking more like the surrounding neighborhood (more colorful, a variety of economic levels, more diversity in sexuality). On the national level, she has served as program facilitator and chaplain with the Episcopal Church Building Fund.
Engaging worship with relevant sermons, welcoming and friendly, hospitable, energetic and joyful are all ways she describes her approach to ministry. She says, “I strive to preach the Gospel with authenticity merging everyday life, current affairs, news and humor with Jesus’ message of love, forgiveness and acceptance.”
Coming to Wilkesboro from Jacksonville, FL Reverend Kedron is married to James and they have twin boys Mills and Walt. She loves soccer, big handbags, cooking, reading and dreams of traveling to exotic places when her boys get older. Clearly her superpower is multi-tasking. We look forward to welcoming Rev. Kedron and her family to Wilkes County in September.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Wilkesboro, N.C: A physical landmark of beauty and a spiritual beacon of hope since its founding in 1836. A parish with a long and storied history, at St. Paul’s we pray together, work together, learn, laugh, and sing together. We try every day to share a little bit of God’s love with our hurting world.
