Parish Management and Administration
Grace Episcopal is a rector-led community with a seven-member vestry, including a Sr. Warden and a Jr. Warden. Vestry members are elected by the parish during the Annual Meeting. Vestry members serve three-year terms which are staggered to have two new vestry members each year. The rector, vestry, parish treasurer, and parish clerk meet monthly on the fourth Monday.
Grace also has three part-time paid positions: the rector’s assistant, the music director, and sexton.
The parish has a Financial Planning Team which primarily oversees investments and previews, with the Treasurer, the annual budget prior to the vestry’s review and approval. Grace has by-laws and an extensive strategic plan. Additionally, we have multiple committees carrying on our ministries: worship, adult education, outreach, care and support, hospitality, newcomers, and children’s ministry.
