The Rev. Alice Marie Mills
I am a cradle Episcopalian who grew up in Asheville, NC. I married Chris Mills in 2016, a dedicated civil rights attorney and the love of my life. I have two great sons from my first marriage. Jack (35) lives in Asheville with his wife Ashley. Kenny (32) also lives in Asheville with his partner Miranda. The fact that my sons are best friends is one of my deepest joys.
I am blessed with two wonderful stepdaughters. Ross (31) lives in Eugene, OR, and Clare (28) lives in Charleston. No grandchildren yet, but we’re hopeful! Although I have a BS in horticulture from NC State and a Master of Divinity from the University of the South, life in Christ continues to be my greatest teacher, and a lifelong course of study and growth from which I will never graduate.
I was ordained in 2010. My first two pastorates were associate positions: St. Mary’s, Napa, CA for two years, followed by St. Mary’s, Columbia, for six years. I was called to St. Timothy’s as part-time Priest-in-charge in August of 2019. I love St. Timothy’s! I find my vocation as a priest to be a labor of love that gives my life its deepest meaning.
Bicycling, bird watching, hiking in the woods, botany, spending time with the people I love, and building relationships with new folks are some of my favorite ways to spend time.
Alice’s regular schedule is Sunday – Wednesday, observing Friday as sabbath, while remaining on call for pastoral emergencies.
