The Rev. J. Clarkson

The Rev. J. Clarkson has not always been a priest. He's also been a teacher, non-profit administrator, and advocate for youth, education, and sustainable food culture. He grew up near Nashville, attended seminary in Austin, and lives near Asheville, so yes, he does know every word to "Wagon Wheel" by Old Crow Medicine Show. J. serves as Rector of Calvary Church in Fletcher, NC. The church forests of Ethiopia fascinate him.

The Rev. John Roberts

The Rev. John Roberts has worked in all different roles within the Episcopal Church since his college, with the congregational-saving exception of singing in the choir. Currently, Fr. John serves as the Chaplain of Christ School in the south Asheville area, and finds great joy in building connections with the students and faculty of the Christ School community. John particularly enjoys woodworking (over exercise any day!) as a way to unwind.

 

Carla Schell

Carla is a retired educator. She grew up in Louisville KY and spent the summers in NC at a girls camp and ended up being their program director - her vision was that this would be ideal for a year-round program/school for kids and what an environment to learn it! A Masters in Education helped her facilitate many programs for Special Needs students as a teacher and supervisor. She has been raising and training Labrador Retrievers for 30 years. Ask her about her Cadaver, Arson or Pet Partner Therapy dogs.

The Rev. Tim Ervolina

The Rev. Tim Ervolina is an Episcopal deacon, which is sort of like being a priest, only without the whole turning ordinary bread and wine into the mystical body of Christ part. As a deacon, he takes a nearly fiendish delight in finding obscure Bible passages forbidding the wearing of cotton/poly blends, eating shrimp and getting tattoos of Bible passages that forbid tattooing, while insisting that the whole point of Chrstianity is to love everyone, everywhere, unconditionally, all the time. Period. He and his spouse Kendra, live in Asheville. They use their regular falls while hiking muddy trails as an excuse to drink beer.

The Rev. Rob Field

Rob founded Center for Spiritual Wisdom in 2016 after serving 22 years as a minister in the Episcopal Church and following a brief career in journalism. “The idea came, and I couldn’t shake it,” he says. “I kept thinking: this part of North Carolina would be the perfect place for a practice-based spirituality center.” After deep reflection and lengthy conversations with several wise advisors, Rob decided to leave the congregation he served for 18 years: “I finally jumped off the high dive into the deep end of the pool.” Rob especially enjoys teaching, writing, and working with individuals who want to broaden and deepen their spirituality. He also teaches World Religions at Brevard College.
