Parish Profile for our Rector Search

Leadership

Our church family is led by a partnership between our ordained clergy and our lay leaders. Each is responsible for different areas.

Rector

Our rector is responsible for the spiritual aspects and the worship of our community. The pastor is in charge of our worship spaces and Christian formation, and responds to the pastoral needs of the church. The Rector presides at all meetings of the Vestry and all parish meetings.

St. Andrew’s is currently in a transitional period as we search for a new rector. Our interim priest is the Rev. Beth Frank, who joined us on June 19th, 2016.

Vestry

The Vestry is the parish council of the church. It is made up of twelve lay leaders who have been elected from the membership of the church for a three year term. All members in good standing who are at least 16 years old are eligible to serve on the Vestry. Parishioners may serve two consecutive terms, and may run again after taking a year off.

The Vestry holds responsibility for the finances and property of the church. They handle all uses of the building and they prepare the church’s budget.

The Vestry currently meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm, in the Fr. Gruetter Room. The Rector normally presides at each meeting.
