He and his wife, Jenna, live in Alexandria with their two children, Jude (aged 7) and Ruby (aged 3). Joshua is in his last year of seminary (God willing) and will hopefully be ordained early next year (God willing).

Parishioner Reflections

Epiphany is a welcoming, diverse and inclusive community. After 175 years, we remain a sacred space for refuge, rest and prayer.

Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which the Archbishop of Canterbury is inviting people around the world to join. The wave of prayer starts May 25 and run for 10 days between the Christian festivals of Ascension and Pentecost. It’s not complicated – people are simply asked to pray in whatever way they want and with whoever they want for others to come to know Jesus Christ.

Bishop Michael B. Curry reflects on the need for #Pledge2Pray

Meet Reverend Huber

Rev. Glenna J. Huber is the 15th Rector of the Church of the Epiphany. Before joining Epiphany, 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).
