Craig grew up in the Mid-Atlantic area – the garden part of the garden state, as a cradle Episcopalian. Further education called him to leave the colonies to attend The University of Oklahoma in the fall of 1967 resulting in a B.A. degree. He met his wife, Michaela (Mickey), while at OU and the two were married in 1978. They have 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren. Professionally, Craig has been a purchasing agent for two oil field pump and supply companies over the past 40 years.
In 2015, Craig chose to make CHSA his home parish and decided to get involved with small groups – the Brotherhood of St. Andrew, adult Christian education, and the Prayer and Praise events. This proved to be an effective way to become acclimated to the parish and its people. He deeply appreciates all those who have reached out to him, which has made him more keenly aware of his role in reaching out to newcomers.
While born in the Sooner State, David came later in life to Anglicanism when he and his wife, Susan, made their way to Church of the Holy Spirit in 1999. He has taught Sunday school for children and adults and is currently an acolyte in the early service. David is a staff psychiatrist at the Oklahoma Forensic Center and works for the diocese to evaluate candidates for Holy Orders. He also facilitates a support group within the Oklahoma Health Professional Program. A quiet home life enriched by spiritual practices, music, cooking, friends and family is what sustains him.
Devon came to Tulsa eleven years ago from Nashville, Tennessee, where he worked as a musician for more than two decades. He subsequently held various executive management positions in the aviation industry. He still enjoys playing guitar, keyboards and music composition as an avocation and is a frequent contributor in the church’s music ministry.
Lisa and her husband, Jim, and their 2 daughters began attending CHSA in 2004. Both Lisa and Jim have served in various capacities over the years. Lisa serves as a lector, is involved in the music ministry and the chancel choir, occasionally makes baptismal cloths for the altar guild, sat on a discernment committee, and taught a Financial Peace University class with Jim. They really “feel the love” among the church family and enjoy absorbing all the great education at Wednesday evening classes. Lisa works part-time as a regulatory compliance analyst and engineering tech in the oil and gas industry, and when she’s not cooking or shuttling kids, she can be found quilting and sewing.
Shane, his wife, Julie, and son, Aidan, found CHSA through the church web page while seeking something more in line with orthodox Christianity. After visiting and feeling that many of the liturgical writings resonated with them, the family joined the church and Shane and Julie were later confirmed as Anglicans. Since that time, Shane had the pleasure of attending CANA Synod as a lay delegate, assisting as chalice bearer and lector, and being a part of church music with his trumpet. Shane and Julie have truly enjoyed being in a liturgical and orthodox community, and Aidan has enjoyed being introduced to marshmallow cream in hot chocolate by Fr. Carl.
After a residence of 25 years in Arlington, Texas, Sheryl and her husband, Bud, moved to Tulsa to be near their children and found CHSA on the web before leaving. Upon arrival in December 2012, both immediately felt at home here and loved the faithful Christian fellowship. Sheryl and Bud have been married for 56 years and have 2 daughters and 6 grandchildren. Sheryl has experience serving on the Vestry of her previous parish and now on the Vestry of CHSA. In addition, she is involved with women’s bible study, Daughters of the Holy Cross, evening bible study, and Sunday school.
