The Rev. Mignon L. “Sarah” Brockenbrough became the Assistant to the Rector at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Greenwood on October 1. Rev. Brockenbrough served previously at Bruton Parish in Williamsburg as associate rector for family ministries.

“Rev. Brockenbrough was selected after a national search and with the assistance of our reading committee of Sally Wallace, Dan Chatman, Jess Haden, and Doris Savage, who offered wisdom, insight and vision throughout our discernment process,” said Emmanuel rector Rev. Christopher Garcia. “She will share in all aspects of parish ministry, with a particular focus on leading the ministry to visitors and newcomers, Christian formation, and outreach.”

A native of Savannah, Georgia, Brockenbrough was youth director at Christ Church Episcopal, Savannah, before attending Virginia Theological Seminary. She earned her undergraduate degree at Vanderbilt and a graduate degree in historic preservation at the University of Georgia.

Rev. Brockenbrough is married to Will Brockenbrough and they live in historic Woodson’s Mill in Amherst County.

Her first Sunday at Emmanuel will be October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.
