The Vestry

The vestry has 18 members, in three classes elected for three-year terms on a rotating basis.  The basic responsibilities of the vestry are to help define and articulate the mission of the congregation, to support the church's mission by word and deed, to select the rector, to ensure effective organization and planning, and to manage resources and finances. Elections are held annually at the parish meeting in January.

The Associate Vestry

The Associate Vestry is a key part of our servant leadership development strategy. Since the 1950’s, St. John the Divine has had an AV team that provides leadership in key ministry areas of the church. They usher on Sundays and help coordinate annual church events. At the same time, they have a chance to learn more about the inner workings of the congregation’s life and ministry. AV members are appointed by the rector for two year terms.
