Highpoint Episcopal Community Church thrives because of the energy, determination, and direction provided by members of our leadership team. We are most fortunate to be the beneficiary of their time and talents.
The Reverend Ruth Pattison - Parson
The Rev. Ruth Pattison was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Although raised in the Baptist church, her father was an organist and choirmaster in the Episcopal Church, which is where she discovered her love for liturgy and music.
At the age of 25, Ruth moved to Columbus, Georgia to explore a professional church life. Her love for the church continued to grow and ten years later, in 1994, she was ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. Rev. Pattison has practiced her priesthood ever since with great joy and deep devotion, both for God and the people of God. She serves the people of Highpoint Episcopal Community Church as the Parson, exercising her gifts for collaborative leadership through preaching, liturgy, and the pastoral arts.
The Rev. Pattison's three beautiful children are nearly grown, with the youngest finishing her final year at UGA. She has been married to fellow priest Benno Pattison since 2012. Together they love to camp and fish, hike and bike, sing and dance, talk on the porch, drink coffee and write poems, stories, and sermons. Together they have six children.
Rev. Pattison can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-905-8171.
The Very Reverend Lang Lowrey - Vicar
The Very Rev. Canon Lang Lowrey serves as Vicar for Highpoint Episcopal Community Church. Following a successful business career, Lang responded to a call to ministry, and in 2004 he was ordained as an Episcopal priest in the Diocese of Atlanta.
As a Canon, Lang serves on the Bishop’s staff. His duties as Canon often involve travel within the Diocese and the Church at large to assist other Episcopal churches with a variety of needs, including work for the Episcopal Church nationally in property development projects and in restructuring and turnaround opportunities.
Canon Lowrey is present with us periodically for preaching and liturgy. He remains active in the business community and many different mission and outreach organizations. He and his wife Julie have four children and three grandchildren.
Canon Lowrey can be reached by email at plangIII@msn.com or 404-727-4023.
