Staff and Vestry Leadership


  • The Rev. Patrick A. Ware - Rector

    Patrick graduated from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 2005 with a Masters in Divinity and began ordained ministry in 2006. Since then, he spent three years on staff at The Falls Church Anglican and then was the planting/founding pastor of Winchester Anglican in 2009. Patrick has also studied Counseling (MA)  and English (BA). He also really likes coffee, mushrooms, the outdoors, listening to his wife's music, and watching his kids do stuff they love. He is so grateful to have the privilege of serving the Lord at Winchester Anglican!

  • Jennifer Albertson - Director of Christian Education

    Jennifer has had the privilege of being a part of ministry and education of all sorts her entire adult life. She graduated from Montreat College with a B.A. in Bible and Religion, spent four years in outdoor adventure camping ministry, and then moved into full-time education homeschooling her four children.  With a deep passion for God's Word, she spends much of her time in relational and educational roles striving for growth and Biblical literacy in her own life and the lives of those around her.  She also enjoys being on the river or trails, spending time with her family and friends, drinking tea, and geeking out studying or teaching Latin.  She is so grateful to the Lord for the opportunity to serve as the Director of Christian Education at Winchester Anglican.

He graduated with a Bachelors in History from Shepherd University and a Masters of Arts in Religion from Liberty University. He is also married to Ivona, who is infinitely more amazing and interesting than he is.
