The Rt. Rev. Thaddeus Rockwell (Thad) Barnum serves as Canon Missioner in the Anglican Mission in America, Pawleys Island, SC. Thad attributes much of his early training and ministry to nine years (1978-87) spent at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Darien, Connecticut under the leadership and anointed preaching of the Rev. Terry Fullam. During those days, his love for expository preaching began and continues to this day. In 1987, Thad was called to plant a new church in Alliquippa, Pennsylvania – a dying mill town. During his years as rector (1987-95), Prince of Peace Episcopal Church grew to over 300 with over 30 ministries active in all facets of parish life. During this time, Thad also served in many other capacities such as Field Education Mentor at Trinity School for Ministry, Chaplain to South American Missionary Society, Chaplain at the USAir Pittsburgh Airplane Crash site for Flight 427, and Chairman of the Mustard Seed Project which provides “Acts of Mission, Acts of Mercy in East and Central Africa.”
In 1997, Thad and his wife Erilynne moved to Pawleys Island to serve as Directors of Missions at the North American Missionary Society and in 1998, the two of them joined the All Saints staff where they serve at present in conjunction with the Anglican Mission in America.
