Pastor Gillikin served as Epiphany's Interim Minister October 2018 through February 2020. On March 1, 2020, the congregation voted to call him as pastor. He and his wife, Margaret, moved to the area in 2015 when Margaret accepted a position as Director of Social Studies Education at Winthrop University. They have two daughters, Meghan and Lindsay.
He has served congregations in Asheboro (NC), Kings Mountain (NC), Chapin (SC), Tiffin (OH), and two other congregations as an interim in Clover (SC) and Rock Hill (SC).
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 in me and God's people by the wonders of God's grace!"
Director of Music
Thanks for all the warm welcoming to Epiphany Lutheran! My husband, Jeff, our youngest daughter, Cindy, and I are excited about being at Epiphany, and we look forward to worshiping with you each Sunday.
We live in Gastonia, NC. We are originally from Indianapolis, IN, where I graduated from Butler University with a major in Music Education. Jeff was in the US Navy, and we lived in Charleston, SC for several years in the mid '80's. We fell in love with the Carolinas, and decided that we would make the area our home when we got the chance.
Feel free to come up and say 'hello' after service. We may be wearing masks, but we're smiling because we're happy to meet you!
I would like to introduce myself, I am Lisa Percival, the new Office Administrator at Epiphany Lutheran Church. I am so thrilled to be here!!!! Everyone I have met have greeted me with open arms. I can sense God working in the hearts of the members here.
I have lived in Rock Hill my entire life, and 37 years ago married the love of my life, Jim Percival. Together we have raised two beautiful daughters We are expecting our first grandchildren in the spring. TWINS!!!! We are so excited.
I taught middle school English for 33 for the Chester County School District retiring in 2015. I previously worked for the York County Free Clinic as the Administrative Assistant. My husband and I are active members at Bethesda Presbyterian Church.
I had prayed that God would send me a job that He felt suited me. Epiphany Lutheran Church is an answer to my prayer. I look forward to getting to know each one of you!!!!
