Our Clergy



Reverend Matthew Wright McCormick is the new Priest-in-Charge at Calvary Church.  Reverend "Matt" is gifted as a committed follower of Christ, a preacher and teacher, a dynamic worship leader, a man sensitive to and committed to multi-cultural ministry and a warm, vibrant welcoming pastor who is well prepared and good at plugging people into ministries.

Reverend McCormick grew up a cradle Episcopalian in the coastal city of Jacksonville, Florida.  He graduated in 2001 from the College of Charleston and met his lovely wife, Lisa, during his early years working in the marketing and hospitality industry in our great city.  He enjoys southern cooking, Charleston arts and music, great stories, and spending time with Lisa and their precious son, Colson. 

Matt was ordained to the priesthood in 2008.  He is a graduate of Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania; he has received a Masters of Theology degree from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, and is currently working on doctoral studies.  He has returned to Charleston with his family after serving as rector of Messiah Episcopal Church in St. Paul, Minnesota.  He has been the vicar of the Church of the Resurrection in North Charleston, South Carolina.  Prior to that, he was an associate rector at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Charleston, a large congregation where he served in a variety of roles. 

We prayerfully anticipate what God desires to do among us through Father Matt.
