Vestry

The Vestry is the governing body of St. Barnabas. Its twelve members are elected by the parish for three-year, staggered terms. The work of the Vestry includes both leadership and management:  visioning and empowering others, planning, organizing, fiscal management and staffing, and working in conjunction with the Diocese of Southern Ohio.

 

The Vestry’s leadership includes a senior and a junior warden, who work closely with the rector. The term “warden” dates back to 17th century England. Wardens are charged with the enforcement of specific canons and by-laws and provide leadership and council with the rector. As elected members of the Vestry, they typically serve a one-year term in this capacity. In addition, a secretary and a treasurer are appointed by the Vestry.

Members of the Vestry serve as liaisons to the Ministry Council Leaders (MCLs) of St. Barnabas, working as mentors and support in the areas of administration and finance, buildings and grounds, children and youth, communications, education and formation, newcomers/church growth, pastoral care, serving community/outreach, strengthening parish life, and worship and music.
