At Sunday services on Feb. 14, 2021, the congregation of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church (541 2nd Avenue, Gallipolis) welcomed the Rev. Joshua D Nelson, to serve as resident priest. Born in Portsmouth, Ohio, and raised in Circleville, Fr. Joshua is a native of Southern Ohio.

Fr. Joshua is very excited to be back in Ohio and to be continuing his ministry with us on the river. He also serves part-time at Grace Episcopal Church in Pomeroy.
