Leadership

Our Rector 

Gareth Evans serves as the rector of St. Barnabas. He and his wife Frances Bean have three children — Cassie, Charlie, and Jamie. He is an inspirational leader who brings significant pastoral experience, a depth of reverence in worship, and a relatable preaching style. 

 Ordained in 1996, Gareth has almost 25 years of parish experience, serving five churches in the Church of England and the Dioceses of Massachusetts and New York. He holds degrees from Oxford and Harvard. His wife, Fran, also plays a key role in parish life, particularly programs for women, parents and children. She holds degrees from McGill University and the University of Massachusetts. 

Gareth is committed to nurturing and exploring faith in an open and welcoming way that leads to a deeper walk with God and builds up community in parish life. He loves to be in spiritual conversation about matters of the heart and mind and brings an openness, sense of humor and curiosity to small group and one-to-one meetings.
