Our Staff

The Reverend Les Carpenter, Rector

The Rev. Les came to us in December of 2012.  The last position the Rev. Les held was Associate Rector of St. Paul’s in Indianapolis where he focused on Young Adult ministry (20s – 30s) and started an innovative Sunday evening service. He loves humor and is active in Houston’s improv comedy community. His enthusiastic and approachable style combine with his depth and insight to lift our spirits and inspire us every week.

The Reverend Bob Gray, Deacon

The Rev. Bob joined us as Deacon in June 2022. He retired in 2015 after spending 20+ years as a Probation Officer. After retiring he worked part-time at his church, as the Parish Administrator and recently graduated from the Iona School for Ministry and will be ordained a Deacon on June 25th.
He has a wife Linda and they just celebrated their 30th Anniversary. They moved from Connecticut to Texas in 1995 and lived in Tyler for 24 years, before moving to Brenham in 2019. They have two daughters, Julia (24) and Rebecca (22).

Taylor Durr, Director of Youth and Family Ministries


Taylor arrived as the Director of Youth and Family Ministries in March of 2014. Feeling a call to ministry early in life, she received her BA from Texas Lutheran University with a major in Youth Ministry and a minor in Hebrew. Taylor and her husband Dustin have a beautiful boy Liam who you will see running around most Sundays, and a beloved Jurri, an Australian Kelpie. Taylor has taught gymnastics and loves ballet and Disney movies.

Heidi Scanio, Director of Music

Heidi is an accomplished musician in her own right as a vocalist and opera teacher. Heidi also has an incredibly warm and inviting personality which I am sure will serve this ministry well. Heidi comes with a wealth of knowledge and a deep commitment to building on the foundation of our strong music ministry.

Krume Andreevski,  Pianist

Krume is a remarkably talented musician having played with symphonies and the ballet. He also has experience in more contemporary bands. We are lucky to have him on our team and I hope you welcome him warmly. Find out more about Krume at https://www.krumeandreevski.com/.

Tiffany Terry, Office Administrator


Tiffany is warm, kind, thoughtful, and extremely sharp. She has an extensive background in non-profits and in organizing organizations of non-prophets as well as administration and leadership. She also has a cottage cookie business, Blue Horizon Bakes, that she owns and runs herself. Tiffany is a Baylor grad and also earned a Masters in Divinity from Samuel Dewitt Proctor School of Theology. She has a wonderful 5-year-old son and her husband the Rev. Andrew Terry is on our diocesan staff. If you need any information about St. Aidan's, Tiffany can you steer you in the right direction.
