David (D.j.) Gunning, Jr.
Parish Administrator

David "Dj" Gunning is a Baltimore native who still eats at least one crab a year to maintain his "Bawlmer" credibility. 

Dj manages the day-to-day operations of St. Gabriel's~San Gabriel and serves as assistant to the Clergy and Staff, and Clerk of the Vestry.  Dj has a heart for bringing people together in unity, equality, and service, and making the church a more welcoming place for all in today's world. 

Dj is also a church musician, having served most recently as the Interim Director of Music and Organist at St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Reston. In 2016, Dj transitioned from a 15-year career in Broadcasting and Journalism, and you may have heard him on a nearby radio station in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and locally at the former 92.5 WINC FM.

Dj is an avid connoisseur of music of all types, wine, food, and locally produced microbrews and spirits. He also enjoys taking his 16-year-old chihuahua Chloe on adventures to local state parks and beaches, and spending time with friends, family, and his husband Adán.
