Bishop Chris Warner was elected to be the second Bishop of the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic of the Anglican Church in North America on October 15, 2022. He was invested by Archbishop Foley Beach on February 18, 2023.
The Rev. Chris Warner was the rector of the Church of the Holy Cross, Sullivan’s Island and Daniel Island from 2015-2022 and served as Associate Rector from 2002 to 2007 and from 2011 to 2015. He successfully led Holy Cross in a transition from a “seeker” model church to a relational and discipleship model church. Between his two terms of service at Holy Cross, he also served as rector and director of St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center. With a staff of 60, he transformed the camp to become a ministry of rest, restoration, and renewal. He and his wife, Catherine, have been married since 1993. They have three children.
“My call from the Lord is to teach, preach, pray and lead (Acts 6:4) and my purpose in life is to know God and make God’s glory known. This glory is the glory of the One and Only Son who is full of grace and truth (John 1:14). My passion has been to help people come alive in Christ, live from the Father’s heart as his beloved children, and then grow as disciples who make disciples of others. My great loves in this life are my wife Catherine and our three children: Anna, Caroline and Nathan.”
Bishop Warner lives in Woodbridge, VA with his wife, Catherine. They have three adult children.
