The Reverend Dr. Willis (Bill) Steinberg
Founding and Senior Pastor
The son of an Episcopal priest, Bill grew up in the Midwest and finished high school in Oregon. He graduated from Western Oregon State College and went on to receive a Masters of Divinity degree from Church Divinity School of the Pacific in 1987. Working in the area of Congregational Development, Bill earned a Doctor of Ministry degree from Seabury-Western in 2003.
Prior to coming to North Carolina, Bill served as head pastor at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Walla Walla, Washington for eight years. In 1999, sensing a call from God to accept a new challenge, the Steinbergs moved across the country to build a new type of congregation from the ground up in the north Raleigh-Wake Forest area. In the fall of 2005, Bill was appointed pastor of Trinity Episcopal Church in Fuquay-Varina.
The Reverend Virginia Musselman
Virginia grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas and is the oldest of eight children. Prior to ordained ministry, she worked for several years in Romania as a teacher missionary. Drawn to the liturgy and historic tradition, she left her Southern Baptist roots in 2008 and became Anglican. After receiving a call to serve God and the church, she was ordained to the diaconate in 2011 and has since served churches in Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Norfolk, Virginia. She holds a BA from Thomas Edison University and a Master of Divinity degree from Regent Divinity.
She and her husband John have been married for six years and have two children, Eliza Jo (3) and Wesley (1). She enjoys trying new recipes from Pinterest, watching British mysteries, spending time with her family outdoors and finding good deals at thrift stores.
