The Rev. Deacon Joseph Revels
Rector, Parish of St. John the Baptist
Calhoun, GA

Rev. Deacon Joe Revels, a North Georgia native, was raised in the Evangelical Movement as a Southern Baptist. He felt a call to ministry early in life and dedicated himself to the service of God while still a teenager. However, his curiousity in outside streams of thought and this own values conflicted with those of his own tradition and he began seeking a spirituality that better fit his nature. He found such a tradition in the Apostolic Johannite Church and is happy to be able to bring its distinct style of sacramental worship to the Deep South.


Deacon Revels has a Bachelor’s degree in Religion and Philosophy from Berry College and is a member of St. Raphael’s Theological Seminary. He currently serves as Rector for the Parish of St. John in Calhoun, GA. He is happily married with one daughter, a kitty, and a hamster.
