Our Church Leadership

Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who are a part of our leadership. Here are a few of the people that make our church family special:

“It is my great joy to be able to serve at Saint Barnabas Anglican Church, and I appreciate Fr. Harold’s gracious partnership in both preaching the Gospel and celebrating during Holy Communion. I love the opportunity to teach, and also thank Fr. Harold for allowing me to travel around both the Diocese of the Carolina’s and the Diocese of South Carolina to serve at various parishes as a “supply clergy”. Fr. Michael

 

Rev Linda Manuel

 

Linda Manual - Assisting Priest

 

The Reverend Linda H. Manuel+ (Linda) is honored to be asked to serve as an Assisting Priest on the St. Barnabas Clergy Team.

Linda and Bob, her husband of 51 years, and their sons, Robert and Tim, have moved many times for his jobs with Westinghouse and Eaton. She had many opportunities to serve in churches from Cathedrals in large cities, to suburban or country small parishes, to new church plants with 3 feet of grass in the front yard in Puerto Rico. The variety of worship experiences, programs she started, and people who she met helped to prepare her for the ministry to which she was called. Her specialty was Christian Education for all ages.


Her education at the Bryn Mawr School, Hollins College, and the George Washington University ( B.A. Political Science; minor in psychology) gave her the background that would be needed for seminary work at the Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pa. (M. Div. 1997).


She was ordained to the Deaconate in the Diocese of Pittsburgh by The Right Reverend Alden Hathaway in June of 1997; and Presbyter by The Right Reverend Robert Duncan on The Holy Innocents in December of 1997.


In February of 1998, she began working with Bishop Duncan’s Mission Team as his “Diocesan Missioner for Small Communities.” She was also in-charge of two parishes who were interested in looking at the Canon 9 model for ministry. That provided an opportunity for her to travel to several dioceses and see and hear first-hand what was happening in the Church. Linda served at least 7 churches in the Pittsburgh diocese as a trained Interim, supply, and eventually as the Vicar of St. Andrew’s, New Kensington. She enjoyed her Diocesan responsibilities as a member of the Diocesan Council; NECCA; Professional Conduct Training Team; Province 3 representative; Clergy Conference Planning Team; Cursillo Team; Acts Board; and the Diocesan Christian Formation Board.


When she and Bob retired to Georgetown, S.C. in June of 2006, Linda was accepted into the Diocese of South Carolina. She is still canonically resident there under The Right Reverend Mark Lawrence, with the kind permission of The Right Reverend Stephen Wood to function at St. Barnabas.


In South Carolina, Linda taught, served as supply and was elected to the Commission on Ministry and Ecclesiastical Court. Before she left Georgetown, she planted ‘Grace Parish’ in North Myrtle Beach. That was a joy and hard to leave.

She and Bob are enjoying being in Sun City Carolina Lakes close to their son Tim and Hope, their three boys and her parents, they miss their son Robert and his family who remain in Sewickley. His two girls will both be in college next year. Life constantly changes and so do we. And God is there!


“It is wonderful to be a part of another church plant. I cannot wait to see how God will use my strengths and weaknesses for His glory. Almost 20 years and counting! I am thankful for the privilege of serving Him and walking with Jesus for as long as I can recall. Would you like to walk with us too?


‘Church plants’ are very special places where everyone is ‘in ministry’, and all ‘spiritual gifts’ are welcome. Everyone has a unique and important contribution to make. New parishes are exciting and challenging places where God’s love for one another is foundational. They require our best for God, and for each other. That can be ‘messy’! Having worked in the landscape design business, I know that ‘messiness’ can lead to great beauty placed into the right hands…God’s hands.


It is my honor to be a part of God’s new venture for His kingdom. It is my prayer that God will draw many people to His Son, Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, and His people here. I pray that one of them will be you! Will you join us? Jesus is waiting for you!
