Annual Meeting 2022

Sunday, February 6
9–9:45 a.m.; In-person or via Zoom

Please join us for the Annual Meeting of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church. Our Annual Parish Meeting is a time for us to come together to celebrate the past year and to look toward the future.

 

During the meeting, we will hear updates about the life and ministry of our parish as well as our financial health. It is also a time when we elect leaders to serve on our vestry (board).

 

This year we will elect one new member, Ben Pflaumer, to our vestry and will elect representatives to serve as diocesan convention delegates. We also will review our parish bylaws and revise a portion (see below). 

Vestry Candidate: Ben Pflaumer

As a St. Barnabas member of 41 years, I've been attending St. Barnabas since its inception. (At that time I was just 5 years old!) 

I remember running the halls of Sycamore High School as a youngster when we had services in the cafeteria. We have come a long way as a community since those days.

Personally, I'm a commercial construction project manager for a local design build construction firm. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Construction Management from University of Cincinnati and a Master’s degree in International Business from Wright State University. I have a wonderful wife, Helen, and two awesome kids.

When I consider what I appreciate most about St. Barnabas, it has to be the kindness and support our community gives to each other during times of need. As a member of the vestry, I would like to help continue our many successes and build on them. Thanks again for your consideration.
