The Ordination of  Anthony Kevin Isley
to the Sacred Order of Deacons Saturday, May 20, 2023

The Ordinand: 

Anthony “Kevin” Isley is the husband of Nichole Alene Isley. After marriage he and Nichole extended their family and  he is the father of two sons Jacob and Oliver. He and enjoys playing video games, lacrosse, and fishing with them.  Kevin lovingly carries on the family tradition of dragging both of sons out to work in the garden.

Kevin is the son of Charles D. (Deceased) and Sylvia E. Isley. His sister Amber I. Clemmer, is married to Russell Clemmer and they have two children, Nathan and Hope. Kevin has one brother, through which he has a nephew, Hunter, and two nieces, Bailey and Olivia.  

Kevin recounts from his earliest memories being taught to love and fear the Lord. His Christian formation includes his mother and father faithfully bringing the family to Andrews Memorial, an Independent Baptist Church, under the shepherding of the Rev’d Tommy Willis (deceased), the Rev’d Doug Roberts (deceased), and the Rev’d Brandon Rouse. In Tennessee, his formation included loving oversight and pastoral care from the Rev’d Dr. Kevin Chiarot, at Covenant Presbyterian Church (PCA). In Houston, he transitioned to the Anglo-Catholic tradition where he worshiped at St. Francis of Assisi Anglican Church (REC) where the Rev’d Fr. Jonathon Trebilco was Vicar.

Upon Kevin’s father being diagnosed with cancer, his family returned home to North Carolina and joined St. John’s Anglican Church. The Rev’d Fr. Sam Steere (deceased), Rev’d Fr. Peter Joslyn, and the Venerable Mark Menees continued to develop and nurture the solid foundation set by so many of Christ’s ministers and flock. He is pursuing a  Master of Theological Studies, concentrated in Anglican Studies, at Nashotah House Theological Seminary.  

Kevin wishes to express his whole family’s heartfelt appreciation for the love, compassion, generosity, and patience from everyone leading to this moment.

Reading the Scriptures, praying together, and sharing a common meal are the ways that Christians from earliest times have enjoyed fellowship with one another and with the risen Lord, and so we continue.

Grounded in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, our worship service is liturgical and based upon the ancient traditions of the Christian faith, and it is also Biblical, rooted in the Word of God.

We welcome visitors by showing forth God's gracious invitation to taste and see that the Lord is good.

St. John's is a community of believers with varying backgrounds, interests and experiences; but in Jesus Christ we are made one body.

Please feel free to contact our parish office or one of our clergy should you desire more information.  

“A Rose by any other Name would…”. Well, Shakespeare had a way with words, but your priest not so much.  Some of you have commented that it would be good to understand the titles on our bulletin and in our church practices.  Most of you know that a priest is referred to as ‘Father’, since he is the father of the parish.  A deacon is usually called ‘The Rev. Mr., and a bishop is ‘The Right Reverend”. However, there are a few additional nuances to the norms.  The Presiding or Archbishop is “The Most Reverend”, so Bishop Chad Jones carries that address.  A dean or canon is called “The Very Reverend’ while an Archdeacon, a member of the bishop’s household is referred to as “The Venerable”.  These have a long history and help identify the role and place of clergy in the life of the church.  Most importantly, we are servants of the servants of Christ.
