The Rt. Rev. Poulson Reed, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma recently announced the appointment of the Rev. Nate Carr as the new part-time Vicar of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Oklahoma City. "I’m excited to welcome Fr. Nathan to this new ministry.

Fr. Nathan Carr recently served as the Vicar of St. James Episcopal Church in Oklahoma City and is grateful for the opportunity to follow God's call to St. John's OKC.

In addition to his ministry as a priest, he also serves as the Headmaster of The Academy - a 700 student, three-campus Christian school of classics (K-12) located in the OKC area.  

Fr. Nathan and his wife Sarah also dabble a bit in retail (Nate's vocation before ministry) through which, they co-founded Commonplace Books/Market in Midtown OKC. Sarah assists with day-to-day operations of this endeavor.  The Carrs also have six children.
