About Bryan Lilly

“It’s a magical world, Hobbes ol’ buddy… let’s go exploring!”
Calvin, Calvin & Hobbes

I am a full-time software engineer who is pursuing ordination to the priesthood in the Anglican Diocese of Christ Our Hope, a diocese of the Anglican Church in North America. I live in Louisville, KY, with my wife and two kids.

I was born and raised in a small town nestled amongst the Appalachian Mountains in Southern West Virginia. I moved to Louisville in 2007 after graduating from West Virginia University with a BSR in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism to pursue a Master of Divinity from Southern Seminary.

Before following the Canterbury Trail, I was a member of a Baptist church for 12 years, where I served as a deacon and, later, a pastor. My family and I are confirmed members of Grace Anglican Church. I currently serve as a litanist, lector, Evening Prayer Group leader, and will be teaching a class on the Pastoral Epistles starting in August 2021.
