Our National Chaplain - The Right Reverend Gregory O. Brewer

 

 

The Right Reverend Gregory O. Brewer was ordained the fourth bishop of the Diocese of Central Florida on March 24, 2012. In Central Florida, major focuses of his ministry include raising up the next generation of lay and clergy leadership and looking at our community neighborhoods and facing the missionary challenge that is before us.

 

Before being called to Central Florida, Brewer served as rector at Calvary-St. George’s Church, a 500-member, multicultural and multiracial parish with landmarked historic buildings in downtown Manhattan. Prior to his move to New York, he was rector of Church of the Good Samaritan, Paoli, Pennsylvania, for 11 years.

 

Bishop Brewer was assistant professor of pastoral theology at Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, from 1992–1996. For 16 years previously, he had served parishes in the Diocese of Central Florida including The Episcopal Church of the New Covenant, a diocesan church plant. He was ordained a deacon at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Lynchburg, Virginia, and ordained a priest at All Saints Episcopal Church, Winter Park, Florida.  He has published articles in The Anglican Digest, with articles appearing regularly from 1985–2007.  Other publications include Bible Reading Fellowship: Journey Through the Word Series and The Coming of the Lord, Second Corinthians.

 

Bishop Brewer earned his B.A. from Lynchburg College, Virginia, where he received the Hugh M. Burleigh Award for Outstanding Ministerial Student in 1973. He received his M.Div. from The Virginia Theological Seminary in 1976. 

 

Married for almost forty years, Bishop Brewer and his wife Laura Lee actively engage in their hospitality ministry with regular clergy dinners and parish visitations. They are the proud parents of five sons and three granddaughters. Bishop Brewer enjoys time with family and friends, road trips, reading, cooking, British murder mysteries, contemporary Christian and classical music and feeling sand between his toes on the beach.
