Assisting Priest - Greg Beaupied

Greg and his wife Susan moved to North Carolina in 2009 after living in South Florida. Greg is a graduate of the University of Florida. He operated his family business for twenty years before attending John Knox Theological Seminary and being ordained in the Presbyterian Church (PCA) in 1996. In Florida, Greg served as a pastor of a church plant, an assistant minister, and a Christian school headmaster. In North Carolina he enrolled in the Clinical Pastoral Education program at Duke University Hospital before joining Capitol Commission as the State Director ministering to the legislators and staff of the North Carolina General Assembly.

After moving to Pittsboro, Greg and Susan attended Holy Trinity Church and discovered a calling from God to serve there as well as finding a wonderful church home. They love the warmth of the people and the depth of the worship at Holy Trinity.

Greg was received into the Anglican Church and ordained as a deacon in October, 2016 and as a priest in April, 2018. Greg has been involved with almost every area of church life over his career, but his desire is for people to grow in Christ and to love Him more. Teaching, counseling and offering spiritual direction are his main passions within the church.

Greg and Susan are avid golfers, both read extensively, and take walks daily if possible. Greg also loves to do home projects such as working in his shop, or mowing their eleven acres of pasture while enjoying some peaceful time on the tractor.

Greg has two married children (their mother, and Greg’s first wife, is deceased). Greg and Susan are grandparents to six grandchildren.

Ryan grew up in the mountains of Colorado. He received his undergraduate degree in Theological Studies from Seattle Pacific University, and moved to the Triangle in 2011

In 2015, he graduated from Duke Divinity School with a Masters of Divinity and now serves as an assisting priest at Holy Trinity.

Ryan is also a full time Pastor at Twin Lakes Retirement Community in Burlington, NC.

Raised outside of the church, Ryan came to Christ in high school and found an immediate sense of calling toward Christian leadership. After moving from church to church, and from state to state, Ryan found a home within the Anglican Church, and ultimately, in the fall of 2012, at Holy Trinity. In his ministry, Ryan dedicates himself to building community through the Gospel.

Ryan lives in Durham with his wife, Averill. Together, they have two daughters, Linnea (2014) and Lila (2017), and one dog named Reno.

Parish Catechist for Children - Lisa McCowen

Lisa is a recent transplant to Chapel Hill with her husband, Shae, and 3 children (Hannah, 12; Matthew, 10; Sarah, 6).  Their family has lived for many years in Minnesota, a few years in Bangalore, India, and most recently, a few years in Park City, Utah.  These many locations have provided rich opportunities for many different kinds of work and church service—teaching Spanish and linguistics in high schools and universities, caring for her 3 children, hosting visiting family and friends, leading small groups for prayer and Bible study, and serving in various PTA roles.
 
Lisa is grateful for God’s deep provision of Holy Trinity as a church home for her family.  After their first visit, she was drawn in by the intentional lingering at the Communion table, the beauty and intentionality of the liturgy, and a warm, personal welcome from the people of Holy Trinity.  As the interim children’s catechist, she hopes to contribute to building community in the Body of Christ and serving children and families at Holy Trinity.

In her free time, Lisa loves reading, cooking for friends, hiking, running, and being outdoors with her family.

Parish Administrator - Nancy Robinson

Nancy was born and raised in Charlotte, NC, the fourth of five children. Although she has lived in Spain and Atlanta, she will always think of North Carolina as home.

Nancy, her husband Nick, and their first two sons Nicolas and Porter moved to Chatham County in January of 1997 where Nick has a private law practice. After they moved to Chapel Hill, their sons Mark and Robert were born. Their family was complete when they adopted two rescue dogs, Lainey, a PBGV-Terrier mix, and later Zorro, a Corgi-Chihuahua mix.  

Returning to the Chapel Hill area was a bit of a homecoming for Nancy as UNC-Chapel Hill is where she earned her undergraduate degree in English and Spanish in 1986. Nancy spent the last twelve years founding and then directing the Bible Church Preschool at Chapel Hill Bible Church. She also used that time to complete 180 hours of training to work with children ages 3-9 in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Alongside her work at the church, she hopes to take 90 more hours of training in the future to work with children up to age 12.

Now it is her great joy to use her training to serve as a volunteer Catechist at Holy Trinity using the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori-based Christian formation method for children. This approach is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. Nancy is deeply grateful to have designated space to create an atrium for the children. The "atrium" is a room prepared for the children, which contains simple, yet beautiful, materials the children use to help them absorb the most essential proclamations of the Christian faith. Contact Nancy if you would like to learn more! 

When Nancy is not working, she enjoys cooking, baking, making materials for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, reading, listening to music recommended by her four sons, going for walks, doing anything related to dogs, and volunteering as a parent rounder on the pediatric oncology floor at UNC Hospitals where one of her sons was treated for cancer in 2016/2017.  Thanks be to God, he is well!

Nancy is excited to be able to use her administrative gifts to serve Church of the Holy Trinity and is thankful for the opportunity to get to know members of our congregation more deeply.

Parish Catechist for Adults - Todd Granger

Todd is a physician in private practice in Chapel Hill. He grew up in a small town in central Louisiana and did his undergraduate studies in New Orleans (Tulane) and his  medical studies in St Louis (Washington University) and Chapel Hill (UNC). He and his wife Jill have called North Carolina home for the past thirty years and have raised three daughters here.

Todd grew up and came to faith in his hometown Baptist church, migrated to the Presbyterians for a while, and was finally drawn into Anglicanism upon moving to North Carolina, after flirting with that tradition as a church organist for several years. He has a near life-long love of history, theology, liturgy, and music and is completing a master's degree in theological studies at Nashotah House, an historic Anglican/Episcopalian seminary in the woods of southern Wisconsin.

Minister of Music - Jonathan Ottaway

Jonathan moved to North Carolina in 2017 to pursue doctoral studies in liturgy and worship at Duke University. Originally from the UK, Jonathan moved to the US to pursue an M.Div. at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts and to be near his wife, Alyssa’s family who are New Englanders. They have one daughter, Rebekah (2), and they live in Durham. 

Jonathan completed an undergraduate degree in music before, naturally, embarking on a career in investment banking and IT consulting. Thankfully God called him out of that and started him on a path towards ministry in 2013. Having grown up in and served in Pentecostal churches while studying at seminary, joining an Anglican church was a slightly unusual move. However, Jonathan is glad for the home that God has provided in Holy Trinity and loves leading the congregation in song.

In his spare time, Jonathan likes spending time with his family (most of the time), cooking, reading things which aren’t theology (audiobooks are even better), the Great British Baking Show, and walking. 
 

Youth Intern - Luke DuCharme

Luke started undergraduate studies at UNC Chapel Hill in Fall of 2016. He is the son of Mike and Lisa. Mike is an Anglican priest and chaplain in the U.S. Army, so Luke is very familiar with the military family life. He’s originally from Denver, Colorado, but he has spent much of his life in North and South Carolina. His major is Information Science with a minor in Computer Science and Religious Studies.

Luke was raised in the Calvary Chapel and various non-denominational churches. He fell in love with Anglicanism through the Book of Common Prayer and discussions with his dad. He started regularly attending his dad’s services at Ft. Jackson’s Bayonet Chapel, Holy Trinity, and St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Maryland (depending on where he was living). He was confirmed in December 2017 by Bishop Steve Breedlove at St. Andrew’s.

In addition to working with Holy Trinity, Luke is a Bible study leader with UNC Chapel Hill’s Cru campus ministry. He enjoys being outdoors and triathlon. He loves to read, especially books or articles on history, theology, and cybersecurity. After graduation, Luke aims to pursue a career in the Army as a chaplain or a career in software development.
