The Vestry is composed of twelve parish members who work with clergy, staff, and parishioners to oversee and implement church policies, programming, and ministry. Working committees of the Vestry include Finance and Stewardship, Buildings and Grounds, Pastoral Care, Outreach, and more.
At Christ Church, vestry members are elected to a three-year term at the Annual Meeting held in January. One-third of the Vestry finishes their term each year, to be replaced by newly elected members.
The head of the Vestry is the Senior Warden, who is responsible for running meetings with the rector. The Christ Church Vestry generally meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm, and any parishioner is welcome to attend.
