Do you have an interest in parish governance? Do you want to step up to a new leadership role at Grace-St. Luke’s? Does the person down the pew from you have special values, skills, and enthusiasm for this parish? Now is the time to think about vestry nominations for the Class of 2018. The Vestry Nominating Committee (VNC) is meeting, discussing potential nominees and wants your input.
In considering a potential nominee, the following guide should be remembered:
- The person must be a confirmed communicant of Grace-St Luke’s in good standing, not less than eighteen (18) years of age, a giver of record and shall not be employed by Grace-St. Luke’s Church, Grace-St. Luke’s School or the Diocese.
- The Vestry functions like a board of directors, overseeing policy and operations of the parish. The five new members of the Vestry will begin service in January 2018 with a Vestry Retreat in early January and monthly dinner meetings on the third Tuesday of the month. It is a three year commitment.
- The person submitting a name should have some indication that the named person would agree to have their name placed in nomination if asked by the Vestry Nominating Committee.
Please submit nominations to Jim Mercer at jam1980mer [at] gmail [dot] com or call at 299-0230 by August 1. Other members of the VNC are Larry Busby, Jim Mercer, Jane Morse, Rob Norcross, and Virginia Rowland.
