Vestry

In the Episcopal Church the vestry is the governing board of the parish. Its primary responsibilities are
  • Discernment: Discerns where God is calling the congregation in this place at this time.
  • Mission and Vision: Helps to articulate the mission and vision of the congregation.
  • New Leaders: Identifies new leaders for the congregation and the wider church.
  • Resources: Manages resources and finances of the congregation.
Each year three enrolled, confirmed, adult communicants-in-good-standing are elected at Good Shepherd’s annual meeting to serve a three year term on the vestry.Vestry minutes and committee reports are available here.
