OUR LEADERSHIP

Vestry

The Vestry is "the board of directors" of St. Mark's. They are elected at the Annual Meeting in February. They prayerfully vote and make the decisions for the church, from hiring the Rector, balancing funds, paying the bills, investing wisely, taking care of the building and grounds, to living our mission of St. Mark's by spiritually growing as a community in Christ and taking care of our neighbors, both locally and around the world.
