Rev. Charles Graves IV, Missioner
Rev. Charles Graves IV is the Missioner for Houston Canterbury.
A native of Maryland, Charles is a seventh-generation cradle Episcopalian. He completed his undergraduate degree at Hampton University and served as a community organizer, campaign manager and in a U.S. Senator’s office on Capitol Hill before completing seminary at Yale Divinity School. Proficient in Spanish and Italian, he has also been a leader in multiple international missions, most notably as a published researcher in Ghana and as an Episcopal missionary serving refugees in Italy. Charles was ordained in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he was also a member of the diocesan Standing Committee, and he has been a member of Diocesan Executive Council in two dioceses. Currently he serves as a member of the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church, helping to envision, organize and support ministries across more than 100 dioceses in the United States and 16 countries in which the Episcopal Church is located. For fun, Charles enjoys exploring around the city, taking time off at the beach, traveling, learning languages and most importantly, seafood.
He is beyond thrilled to join the incredible ministries of Houston Canterbury & St. Luke the Evangelist across the campuses, throughout the city and beyond. What an honor to serve Our Lord among the superb team that is the Diocese of Texas.
