Pastors Robert and Carol Cannon began their ministry with the people of St. Andrew’s in June 2016. Pastor Robert grew up in Florence SC and graduated from Wofford College. Pastor Carol grew up in Columbia, Missouri and graduated from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. They met at Yale Divinity School. They are blessed to have been partners in ministry and marriage since 1982.
In ministry, they enjoy helping people see where God is at work in the world and in their lives. They believe that where your gifts and the needs of the world intersect, there you are called of God to serve. Frederick Buechner puts it this way, “The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”
Carol and Robert have two daughters: Sarah lives in Austin, Texas and Betsy lives in Brooklyn, New York. Robert and Carol enjoy preparing and eating home-cooked meals, bird watching, hiking, and visiting family.
