St. Mark's Vestry

The Vestry of St. Mark's, as with any Episcopal Church, serves as the Board of Directors for us as a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The Rector is the President and CEO as well as the Board Chair of the corporation. The Senior Warden is the Board Vice-Chair, the Junior Warden is the Property Chair, and the Treasurer is the Finance Chair. Vestry members are elected at our Annual Meeting in January of each year for three year terms, after which they must take a year off before being eligible to run again. The Vestry also shares with the Rector in leading the spiritual life of the congregation, discerning God's direction for the organization.
