The Rev. Ted Duvall
I'm a "shameless huckster for the life of the Church" because I believe that God calls us to "be a communion of saints in a community of faith." Since 2011 I've been privileged to serve as the Rector of Christ Church Mt. Pleasant trying faithfully to "make disciples" (Mt. 28:19) - our one great purpose, and I hope you will come and join us.
