Meet Reverend Huber

Rev. Glenna Huber is currently serving as interim Rector at St. Andrews Episcopal church in College Park, MD. Before that she served as Vicar at the Holy Nativity Episcopal Church in Baltimore. She has also served as a consultant for urban congregations on the efficacy of community organizing in congregational development.

For the past 15 years Rev. Huber has served in a number of pastoral roles in Baltimore and Atlanta, including ecumenical and educational positions. Her positions have provided her with the opportunity to offer pastoral care and counsel to teachers, seniors and parents, and students from pre-school to high school.

She has experience in working in a variety of communities and neighborhoods ranging from suburban affluent neighborhoods to under served and economically depressed environments.

In relationship to her capacity within the church, Rev. Huber is a sought out lecturer and has addressed subjects ranging from leadership in the church and in the community to faith and justice and systemic injustice, including urban poverty, education, housing, redlining, and how the church can respond to issues affecting our community, to racism and reconciliation.

She has contributed a chapter to “Organizing and The Church: Congregations Organizing for Growth,” which is to be published sometime in 2017. Awards that Rev. Huber has received include the Distinguished Alumni award, conferred by Holland Hall School, Community Service Award, conferred by the Baltimore Police, and Marylander of the Year, honorable mention by The Baltimore Sun.

Other positions held in the community are as a board member of the Episcopal Urban Caucus and a former board member of the Anti-Racism Commission Diocese of Atlanta, Feminist Women’s Health Center (Georgia), Episcopal Service Corporation, Holy Nativity St. John’s Development Corporation, and the Parks Heights Community Health Alliance and the former Pimlico Road Youth Program (Maryland).

Rev. Huber received a Master of Divinity degree from The General Theological Seminary (New York) and her undergraduate degree in history from Spelman College (Georgia).

She is married to Richard, and they have two children – Jonas (4), and Adayah (2).

    Congratulations Glenna!
    Welcome to Epiphany! Along with Tripp Jones, I am researching and writing “Church of the Epiphany” history (and what a history it is!).
    I extend our warmest greetings from Epiphany’s child, originally “Epiphany Chapel and Church House” now “Epiphany Episcopal Church”, Odenton, Maryland, where diversity is our middle name.
    Our rector Rev. Dr. Phebe McPherson, the first woman ordained in the Diocese of Maryland, also sends her congratulations! We are the Epiphany Chapel that is still in existence, celebrating our Centennial next year!
    We will be making a pilgrimage to Church of the Epiphany next year to celebrate, though I commute by your Epiphany every work day on the way to the Pentagon to help create policy at DoD!
    Cheers,
    Warren
