Rau
The Rev. Michael Rau
Mike has been serving as Rector of Holy Nativity, Rockledge, since 2015. Previously, he served as Associate Rector at St. Mark's in New Canaan, Connecticut and as Youth Minister at Church of the Messiah in Gwynedd, Pennsylvania. He grew up in Hatfield, Pennsylvania, outside of Philadelphia. He graduated from North Penn High School, Temple University, and the General Theological Seminary. He also studied youth ministry at Eastern University. Prior to seminary and becoming ordained, he held a senior level management position at Montgomery County in the court system. Growing up, his earliest vocational aspirations was to become a school bus driver or a professional athlete, and at one time, even thought about becoming the Phillie Phanatic. That didn’t pan out.

He is a member of the Standing Committee in the Diocese of Pennsylvania. In addition, he serves as the Vice-chair of the Diocesan Finance Committee and is the chair of the Fair Share Committee. 

Mike is married to Melissa and they have three children: Talie, Kay, and Peyton. Mike, in his free time, can be found trying a new recipe since he has a profound love for food and cooking.
