THE REV. CAMERON NATIONS
Growing up, Cameron didn’t even know what the words “Episcopal” or “Episcopalian” meant, and so he considers the fact he is now a priest in The Episcopal Church as evidence of God’s sense of humor.
Cameron grew up just south of Nashville in a Southern Baptist megachurch surrounded by folks involved in the Christian music and publishing industries. Active as a worship leader in his church and wider community, Cameron first felt called to ministry in high school, but it wasn’t until a few years later while in college at the University of Illinois that he found his home in The Episcopal Church and his call to ministry finally came together. Though he had been a worship leader for years, it was in the structure and form of the liturgy that Cameron encountered Jesus in a new way.
Prior to serving in Round Rock as the Rector of Saint Richard’s, he served on staff at Saint Luke’s in Birmingham, AL and All Saints in Winter Park, FL.
A self-described “Anglo-Catholic-Bapti-Palian,” Cameron loves the way that the Episcopal Church brings together the richness of the Christian tradition, the wonder of the sacraments, and the fullness of the Reformation all under one roof. It’s a little bit Catholic, a little bit Protestant, and a little bit rock ‘n roll.
In his spare time, Cameron likes to write, cook, listen to music, read long-form journalism, watch auto racing, and ride his motorcycle (though not all at the same time, of course). Cameron loves meeting Jesus in the pages of Scripture and in prayer, and enjoys helping others grow in their faith as disciples of Jesus Christ.
He is married to Carly, an educator and writer, and they share their house with three dogs and a cat.
Cameron is grateful to have found his way to the Episcopal Church, and is always eager to help others find their spiritual home here, too. Come find out what makes us so special. Saint Richard’s welcomes you!
