Rev. Adam Young enjoys conversations around a fire pit, 80’s hair bands, college football, card games, and any food served with bacon. Before coming to the Chapel in summer of 2018, he served churches in New Orleans, Birmingham, and Orlando. 

“The glory of God is a human being fully alive.”

– St. Irenaeus (2nd century)


Jaxson Crews

Chief Musician

Jaxon Crews has served as chief musician at the chapel since June of 2018. His desire is to help curate art in chapel services that is glorifying to God and edifying to the church body. Through the use of ancient hymns and modern devotional music (as well as other forms of art), Jaxon seeks to create a space for anyone to worship regardless of where they find themselves in life. He has a degree in Elementary Educations from the University of Florida and currently also serves as the Director of Family Ministries at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Gainesville.

Leslie Garrote

Theologian in Residence

Leslie enjoys sharing delicious food, deep conversation and laughter in settings ranging from foodie-favorite restaurants, to her dining room table, to any remote location around the world. A long time K-12 educator serving in schools in New Orleans, Leslie moved to Gainesville in 2018 to live closer to her Gator-loving family and begin seminary studies at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. She is grateful for this season of systematically studying God's Word while worshipping and serving in the dynamic community of the Chapel of the Incarnation.


"Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her."

– Proverbs 8:10-11


Sam & Mae Mason

Chapel Residents 

We drove an hour to go to the chapel house for a year before finally getting the opportunity to move to Gainesville. Our favorite part of the chapel is the rich, diverse community, the atmosphere of welcome every time you walk in the door, and the opportunity to build long lasting, authentic friendships. We wouldn’t trade our experience at the chapel for anything. It has greatly enriched our lives and spirituality in a way that nothing else ever has.
