St. Alban's Episcopal Church

  welcomes you

The Reverend David E. Buck, 

D. Min.

Rector

 The Rev. Buck is a 1971 graduate of Davidson College, where he earned a B. A. degree in French, cum laude.  He continued his studies at Princeton, where he earned his Masters of Theology degree, and at Emory University, where he was awarded a degree as Doctor of Ministry in Theology, magna cum laude.

He was ordained a minister in the Baptist church in 1974 and served for three years as an assistant pastor at a church in New Orleans, then was called to be Senior Pastor at Terrill Road Baptist Church in Scotch Plains, NJ. He moved to Huntersville in 1991 and served as Senior Pastor at Independence Hill Baptist Church on Eastfield Road through 2001.

The Rev. Buck was increasingly drawn to the Episcopal faith, and after serving as an assistant at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Mission in Mooresville in 2002, made the decision to return to seminary and study to become an Episcopal priest. He received a diploma in Anglican Studies from General Theological Seminary in New York in 2003 and was ordained to the Episcopal priesthood in 2004.

Among his outside interests. Father David recently completed the Boston Marathon, a life's goal and his twenty-first marathon run. He also enjoys golf, tennis and gardening, reading poetry and history, and most of all life with his wife, Paige Baker, whom he married here at St. Alban's in May, 2009.

The Reverend Greg McIntyre

Associate Rector and Episcopal Campus Minister at Davidson College

Father Greg is a life long Episcopalian.  Born in Athens, Georgia, he grew up in and around the town, and later attended the University of Georgia.  After graduating, he moved to Black Mountain, North Carolina where he worked as a summer camp director and professional lay minister for nearly a decade.  His seminary studies were at The General Theological Seminary in New York, and he has been serving as a Priest since his ordination in 2011. 

Greg joined the staff at St. Alban’s in August of 2013.  He is married to Kathleen McIntyre, also an Athens native, and together they have two children, Gracie and Andrew.  Apart from his vocation, his interests are too numerous to list but often tend to culminate around the outdoors, fitness, and power tools.

The Reverend Rebecca Yarbrough


Deacon

Rebecca is a Charlotte native, married to Dave for 34 years, who lives in Charlotte with a dog and cat. A graduate of Queens College and the UNC School of Government's County Administration Program, she's also the mother of Nancy and Kathy, graduates of USC and UNC-W respectively. She was ordained to the diaconate in June, 2008, and came to St. Alban's in July, 2008.

As a vocational deacon, Rebecca's call is to "bridge" between the Church and the needs of the world. This means helping to bring world and community needs to the attention of St. Alban's and helping St. Alban's to organize to meet those needs.

Right now that work includes supporting St. Alban’s very active Outreach Team as they launch an initiative to help the homeless and housing-insecure and provide a wide range of programs and services to help those in need in the Lake Norman area:  La Escuelita San Alban bi-lingual pre-school, serving at the Mooresville Soup Kitchen, tutoring at LearnWorks Bridge, and planning mission work in Costa Rica.  She also leads a team from other Episcopal congregations in Charlotte in the start-up of Galilee Ministries, serving the refugee and immigrant community of East Charlotte.
