After 25 years in data processing for a variety of manufacturing, newspaper, and soft-drink companies, and after his five sons were either in or through college, Fr. Bruce White answered God's call to ordained ministry. A native of Iowa, he received his M. Div. degree from the University of the South (Sewanee) in 1998. After serving Christ Episcopal Church in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where he also had responsibilities for campus ministry at Western Kentucky University, he was called to be Rector of St. Michael and All Angels in Anniston, Alabama. Fr. White has been at St. Alban's Episcopal Church since 2011. He enjoys preaching and teaching, as well as just getting to know everyone. In his "off" time, he enjoys reading, golf, following Hawkeye sports and traveling with his wife, Pam.
