John W. Yates III is the rector of Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Raleigh, NC, where he has served since 2010.

John is in his 20th year of ordained ministry, having served in the Chapel at Clare College, Cambridge, and at Church of the Good Samaritan, Paoli, PA, prior to becoming rector at Holy Trinity. John has been married to Alysia for 22 years and they have four teenage children: Sylvia, Isabel, Jack and Alexander.
