Cameron had the privilege of serving as the Associate Rector for Parish Life and Community Development at Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church in Birmingham, AL. In this capacity, he was involved in the parish’s family ministries, working closely with a team of about seven lay ministers on staff who were devoted to providing spiritual formation to the children, youth, young adults, and parents of the parish.
Cameron also oversaw the parish’s outreach and community engagement initiatives, where, in addition to awarding hundreds of thousands of dollars per year in community outreach grants, they did everything from working with numerous homeless shelters in downtown Birmingham to partnering with some of their sister parishes to run food pantries. In 2019, they even helped forgive $8.5 million in oppressive medical debt for over 6,500 households in central Alabama.
In addition to his role at Saint Luke's, Cameron was also active in the life of the Diocese of Alabama, serving on multiple diocesan boards— including the board of Camp McDowell, their camp and conference center— and on the boards of other local charitable organizations in Birmingham.
His wife Carly taught 9th and 10th grade English at the Jefferson County International Baccalaureate School, their county's IB high school. In addition to teaching, Carly also does freelance writing projects for a variety of online and print publications.
Cameron and Carly share their home with three dogs (Arthur, Sophie, and Rupert), and one cat (Mable).
For fun, Cameron enjoys spending time with Carly and their animals. He likes to cook, have friends over for dinner, watch auto racing, read, write, listen to music, ride motorcycles, and get lost in a good podcast or documentary (though usually not all at once).
