The Rev. Gabriel Lawrence
My name is Gabriel Lawrence, and I am the Assistant Rector for Newcomer, Engagement, Hospitality, and Pastoral Care ministries. I am passionate about building community where all are welcomed, loved, and valued. I am thrilled to serve this community at St. Paul’s, where God’s love is sought after and shared with the world.
Originally from Nashville, I spent 15 years in the Diocese of Georgia before being called to St. Paul’s. I hold an MDiv from the University of the South, Sewanee, and a Bachelor of Liberal Studies from Georgia Southern University. Before my ordination to the Diaconate in October 2023, I worked as a parish music director, piano instructor, florist, composer, community organizer, and event planner. In addition to my call to ordained ministry, I enjoy running, cooking, hiking, and spending time with my Cavalier King Charles spaniel, with whom I share a name.
