The elected body of officers and vestry members of Christ Church formally meet with the Rector on a monthly basis to discuss the overall direction of Christ Church, to review and allocate funding sources and expenditures and to proactively address the needs of the parish and the community.
Vestry members typically serve a three year term.
Current vestry members include
