Resurrection Anglican Church is led by God through His servant Father Gilliam as its rector. He was born and raised in the Concord/ Kannapolis area and lives in Enochville with his wife, Nelva and their five children, Paola, Addison, Emmanuel, Elijah, and Zoe.  

Father Gilliam graduated from Concord High School and studied music under Betty Williams of Concord who was his voice teacher for several years.  He is a graduate of Queens University in Charlotte, NC  where he completed his B.A. with a major in Spanish and a concentration in Music.  What a joy to hear him sing.  God’s drawing led him to experience Him in many different and varied ways, but he was always drawn to the liturgy.  Father Gilliam developed a particular love of the liturgy and the sacraments which led him into the Orthodox Anglican Church.   

Father GIlliam completed his Masters of Divinity through Liberty Theology Seminary in Virginia, and the Doctor of Ministry from  Hood Theological Seminary in Salisbury, NC. 

Father Gilliam says, “The Bible, The Creeds, and the worship of the church as found the Book of Common Prayer (1928) are the tools available to Orthodox Anglicans to help them stand firmly upon the Scriptures and understand that culture does not dictate our beliefs.”   He explains that he loves the way that Orthodox Anglicans stand firmly on Christ as revealed in the  Bible and that it does not need to be interpreted in light of modern social inventions. 

Father Gilliam was ordained as an Anglican priest on April 25 2014 and received into the Orthodox Anglican Church in 2020.

Father Gilliam says, “breaking open the word of God to the people of God is the highest of vocations because it reaches into the heart of God.  Pastors today must take seriously the call to preach, which is a call to prepare.”  His parishioners love his sermons because of his diligence in defining and applying the scripture to their daily lives. 

The clergy and parishioners of Resurrection Anglican Church welcome and opens its doors to all people to be transformed as we "Exalt Jesus and Worship Him."
