Vestry (Board of Directors)
The role of the Vestry of Church of the Word is to work in partnership with the Rector in crafting and promoting our churches vision.   Specifically, this means:

  • to articulate a mission and map specific goals and strategies to achieve this
  • to mobilize both human and material resources
  • to motivate both ministry leaders and congregation members
  • to monitor the progress and insure accountability towards specific ministry goals, adjusting in response to both success and failure
