The Vestry is the group of elected lay leaders of our parish who work with the rector and staff in setting the direction and vision for Christ Church. The Vestry holds the responsibility for the faithful management of property and finance as a corporation in the State of Delaware and a congregation in the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware and oversees the development of our preschool and all the ministries of the congregation. Its members respond to the calling of leadership, oversight, and management, bringing diverse talents and experiences to the task, guided by scripture and holy conversation and empowered by the Spirit in carrying out God's mission. The Vestry normally meets on the second Thursday of each month. Our meetings are open to the congregation, and we warmly welcome you to attend.

Vestry members and officers include:

Vestry Nominations Being Accepted

Do you feel called to serve your parish community as a member of the vestry or know someone who would make a great candidate? We are now accepting nominations for next year’s vestry class. The vestry serves many important roles in partnership with our rector. Key responsibilities include setting and enabling the long-term vision and purpose of the parish and ensuring its ongoing health and vitality through sound spiritual and financial stewardship of our congregation and our beautiful campus. As part of this, setting ministry budget priorities is a key responsibility. The current vestry has been focusing on two main areas of work, which we expect to continue over the coming years—the care and spiritual feeding of all individuals in our parish and growing our flock of engaged parishioners. If interested in learning more or submitting a nomination, please reach out to any member of the vestry, including this year’s outgoing class, who is completing their third and final year of vestry service: Al Smith, Nancy Greenberg, Lee Kallos, or Joe Zakielarz.
