Interested in serving on the Vestry – the Board of St. Matthew’s?

Or do you know someone you think would be a real asset to the Vestry?

The Nominating Committee is looking for a few good candidates!


Qualifications: nominees must be “adult communicants in good standing”, which is defined by our national canons as “16 years or older, baptized, faithful in corporate worship unless for good cause prevented, have received holy Communion in this Church at least three times during the preceding year, and have been faithful in working, praying and giving for the spread of the Kingdom of God” (this last particularly meaning they have given in some way to the support of this parish).

Responsibilities: attend regular monthly meetings, new member orientation and 24 hour Vestry retreat in late February, various committees as assigned, and general leadership in parish.

If you are interested in running, or in submitting someone else’s name, please fill out a nomination form at the reception desk in the Narthex and place it in the box.

Questions? Please speak to the Wardens, Chris Thorne (chair of the Nominations Committee), one of the vestry, or Tom Momberg, our Interim Rector.

Gibbs Reese, Sr. Warden

Edie Nixon, Jr. Warden

PLEASE NOTE: Immediate family members (e.g. spouse, children, etc.) of staff, current vestry members and Rector search committee are not eligible for nomination.
