About Rev. Everett

Rev. Everett W. Charters IV completed his MDiv. program at the Church Divinity School of the Pacific and was ordained to the Transitional Diaconate in June 2020. Rev. Everett grew up in Maine and was raised in the Roman Catholic Church. He attended New York University where he graduated with a BA in History. He spent many years working for The Asia Foundation in San Francisco, CA before moving briefly to Oregon before heading to Hawai’i. He eventually returned to Oregon and now lives in Forest Grove. Rev. Everett was Confirmed in the Episcopal Church on December 13, 2015, at St. Gabriel and so it is full circle that he is serving in his first position in ordained ministry with us. On Pentecost Sunday, June 5, 2022 Everett+ was installed as the permanent priest-in-charge at St. Gabriel’s.

Meet Our Lay Ministers

Greg Law

Sr. Warden

Raised on the Quinault Indian Reservation in Washington, Greg joined the army straight out of high school. A year later, he was admitted into the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he studied Systems Engineering and Environmental Science. In addition to boxing as a heavyweight, while a cadet, he was a member of the theater arts guild. After 11 years of service, civilian life led to a career in medical device manufacturing and the semiconductor industry.

Greg’s spiritual journey began with the Assembly of God and Indian Shaker Churches, and extended to other Christian denominations. Each tradition added to his development as a Christian, and ultimately led him to St Gabriel’s in 2021. Working as a member of the Vestry and Congregation, he is resolved to identify and communicate our mission and vision as a Spirit-filled community.

Gene Dietzman

Jr. Warden

Gene is a lifelong Portland resident, a graduate of Portland State, and retired as a partner of Anchor Insurance and Surety. After retirement, he started spending time in his woodshop building furniture for both the house and the church. Some of his most fun and challenging projects were the processional cross and the stand for the chasuble, both made from the old yew tree. Another passion he and Ginger have is travel, both internationally and driving trips through the United States including driving twice to Alaska. He enjoys spending time building and fixing things at the church.

Sean Fitzgerald


Sean Fitzgerald is St. Gabriel’s sexton, working with the junior warden who oversees the maintenance of the church, building, equipment, furnishings and grounds. Sean and his wife Vicki have been attending St. Gabriel since 2014.  Sean has been on the vestry and recently joined the technology ministry team to run the online Zoom camera at the 8:00 am service. He finds joy helping out around the church.
