Close up of Charles Smiling (267x300)

The Rev. Charles J. Smith was born and raised in Farmvillle, Virginia. He graduated from Hampden-Sydney College in 2005 with a degree in Philosophy. He began his seminary training at Virginia Theological Seminary and completed the last semester of training at Ripon College Cuddesdon, a private hall of Oxford University. In 2011 he accepted a call to serve as Assistant Rector at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He became Rector for Trinity July 1, 2014 and is excited about the opportunities we will have to share the Good News of God in Jesus Christ within the wider city and to become more involved in dicoesan activities. Charles married his Longwood College sweetheart, Chrissy in 2006. Chrissy is a special education educator in Suffolk and is a native of Virginia Beach. Duke is the family dog.
