Pastor Gillikin began serving as Interim Minister at Epiphany in October 2018. He and his wife, Margaret, live just outside of Rock Hill in Clover. They moved to Clover three years ago when Margaret accepted a position as Director of Social Studies Education at Winthrop University. They have two daughters, Meghan (18) and Lindsay (22). He is delighted to have the opportunity to be Epiphany’s Interim Pastor as it works throughout this time of transition.
His comments about ministry: “I heard God’s call to serve when I was a teenager. The youth director challenged me to have faith to dream of what God’s Spirit could do through my life. We called our youth group the Faithful Dreamers! I haven’t stopped dreaming and believing in what God's Spirit can do by the wonders of God's grace."
