We are pleased to announce that the Rev. Greg Methvin has accepted the call to be the second Rector of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church.   Methvin is currently the Vice-Rector at Church of the Incarnation in Dallas, Texas.  His first Sunday at St. Philips will be March 29, 2015.

 Although new to the leadership of St. Philip’s, Methvin has been a longtime friend of the parish- ministering as both a preacher and speaker. “For years I have watched St. Philip’s grow – both in passion and mission.  I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to now make it my home and serve this community of faith as we walk into God’s great future for Frisco and the world.”

An ordained priest for ten years, Methvin has been serving in ministry for 30 years.  Prior to his time at Church of the Incarnation, he served as Vice Rector at Christ Church in Plano, Texas.  He received his Master of Divinity from Southern Baptist Seminary and New Orleans Baptist Seminary and earned his certificate in Anglican Studies from Perkins Seminary at Southern Methodist University.  Methvin resides in Plano with his wife Steffanie and his two teenaged daughters Claire and Emily.

  “We are confident that Fr. Greg is indeed the one that God has called to this place at this time. The Holy Spirit has spoken to us clearly and directly. We have no doubts,” says David Chalker, chairman of the search committee. 

 St. Philip’s is a congregation of over 1200 members located in the heart of Frisco, TX.  St. Philip’s serves the greater Collin and Denton county community and is a member of the Diocese of Dallas. The church is located at 6400 Stonebrook Parkway in Frisco, worship services are Sundays at 9:30 and 11:00 am. To learn more visit stphilipsfrisco.org.

St. Philip's Hall will be dedicated on May 4.

St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Frisco will officially dedicate its new multi-purpose building, St. Philip’s Hall, on the Stonebrook Campus, May 4. The new building will be home to 21,000 sq. ft. of worship, education and administration space. The public is invited to attend the dedication and open house reception from 12:00 – 2:00 pm.

St. Philip’s Hall is designed for maximum flexibility and will be utilized all week long by the church, preschool and Academy.  The brand new facility will feature large meeting spaces for fellowship gatherings, youth ministry, meetings, classes and seminars. Academy classrooms and staff/administrative offices will also be housed in the new building.

The Hall joins two other structures built on the St. Philip’s campus in 2006, on 10 acres just west of the Stonebrook Pkwy./Dallas Pkwy. intersection, which include a dedicated worship space seating more than 600.

The new building faces a large open courtyard edged with cloistered walkways, lush landscapes and the High Cross Garden. Traditional architectural themes such as the cloister walkways and gothic windows are hallmarks of the campus, but the new building also features contemporary design elements to reflect the dynamic and active congregation.

“Rather than build a large sanctuary as many churches do, we decided that it would be more impactful to have a building that could be used every day, not just Sunday. This new building will be in use seven days a week, and will allow us to build a stronger sense of community, help transform people’s lives and empower kids to change the world,” said Rev. Dr. Clay Lein, Sr. Pastor.  “God has done amazing things at St. Philip’s during our first 10 years of ministry, and we’re thrilled to be moving into our next decade of transforming lives. This expansion will impact not only our current members, but all of those that are to come in the future.”

St. Philip’s holds worship service at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Sundays at 6400 Stonebrook Parkway in Frisco. For more information, call 214-387-4700 or visit www.stphilipsfrisco.org.
