St. Mark's Episcopal

Building community... living the way of Christ

Clergy & Staff

Rector

Reverend Sarah D. Hollar came to St. Mark's in 2005, from St. Luke's in Salisbury, as Assistant to the Rector. Although a Texas native, Sarah grew up in Greensboro and graduated from UNC with a major in English and American Studies. After many years in corporate America, Sarah succumbed to God's calling by attending Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, to achieve her MDiv.

     

Sarah thrives in her parish duties as well as being active in diocesan ministries. Currently, Sarah serves on the Diocesan Fair Shares Appeals Board, Swindell Speakers Fund Committee chair, Diocesan Standing Committee, and a General Convention deputy. Formerly, Sarah chartered a committee on Global Mission, Diocesan Council member, Department of Congregational Development chair, and Companion Diocese Committee chair to Costa Rica. 

     

Sarah is particularly interested in Christian formation, evangelism, and homiletics with an emphasis on practical theologian rather than a theoretical. Her hobbies include travel, theatre, minor league baseball, opera, Bruce Springsteen, and snorkeling. Sarah and her husband, Peter, were married in 2012, and combined have four adult children and several grandchildren.



Youth Minister & DCF

Matt Addington, Youth Minister and Director of Christian Formation (DCF), was born and raised in Gastonia, NC. Matt joined the St. Mark's clergy in 2009, from First Baptist Huntersville as the Interim Youth Minister. He graduated from Western Carolina with a BS in Sport Management and Exercise Management concentration. After a year and a half of full-time campus ministry, he attended George W. Truett Theological Seminary in Waco, Texas, and received his MDiv with a concentration in Student Ministry.


Matt’s passion for working goes beyond St. Mark's and extends into the diocese. He serves on as a board member for the Charter Committee for Youth, and advises for the Diocese of Costa Rica, and serves the Swindell Speakers Fund Committee. Matt’s valued experiences and unique approach has lead to publications in the Truett Journal of Church and Mission encouraging youth and social justice.

     

Matt and his wife have two young daughters. His hobbies include travel, all Asian foods, and caving and rafting in the great outdoors.
