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 and Lindsay. Meghan is a senior at Clover High School. Lindsay is a fourth year student at the Ohio State University. He enjoys spending time with his family, listening to music, following his favorite sports teams, hiking, golfing, ice skating, and reading inspiring books. 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 all of us in the youth group to have faith to dream of what God’s Spirit could do through us. We called ourselves the Faithful Dreamers! I haven’t stopped dreaming and believing in the wonders and mystery of God’s grace. Some of my most cherished memories are living as part of a Christ-centered community, reading through the Scriptures with congregations, participating in small group Bible studies, and having the privilege of proclaiming the Word of God and leading worship.”
