Ordination of Henrietta Rivers
January 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Henrietta Rivers, January 15
God willing, Henrietta Rivers will be ordained to the transitional diaconate at 3 p.m. on Saturday, January 15, by Bishop Mark Lawrence at St. John’s Chapel, Charleston.
Henrietta Rivers holds a Master of Divinity degree from Trinity School for Ministry and has the daily privilege of sharing the Gospel of Christ to students at Porter Gaud School as the Middle School Chaplain. In addition to teaching and pastoral care at the school, Henrietta serves at St. John’s Chapel, Charleston where her husband, The Rev. Matthew Rivers, is the Rector. At St. John’s she is a Bible study teacher and women’s ministry leader, as well as leader of the parish’s prayer and inner healing ministries. Henrietta’s greatest realization is that she is a vessel of Christ, to be used as He desires. She says this takes the pressure off presenting the Word of God. “I’m not responsible for the Work of Scripture. My only job is to present the truth in its purest form; God does the rest.” Henrietta and Matthew have two children, Kariesha, 23, and Herbert Jordan, 25. She serves on the boards of New Wineskins, Florence Crittendon Charleston, and Anglican Women of South Carolina, and on the Bishop’s Search Committee for the Anglican Diocese of South Carolina.
