Clergy & Staff
Our clergy are responsible for leading our community toward the vision God has given Restoration. These pastors have been trained in seminary and set apart to occupy a particular office in our Anglican tradition. We currently have two different types of clergy: presbyters (also called priests) and deacons. They have different types of responsibilities, but they work together to serve the whole church and to come alongside our staff and volunteer leaders in teaching, discipling, and providing pastoral care to the congregation. All our clergy are under the authority of Bishop John Guernsey, the bishop (or overseer) for the Anglican churches that make up the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic.
Our staff are a dedicated group of faithful, fun, and talented folks. Whether overseeing kids’ small groups, training musicians, or keeping track of our finances, the staff are the people who keep much of Restoration’s life on track. They love Jesus, and they love to serve his church.
Our vestry, or board of elders, is made up of nine women and men who wisely and prayerfully help lead our church. They are responsible for the oversight of our finances and our facility, and they partner with our clergy and staff to discern God’s vision for Restoration.
Each member serves as a liaison for a different area of our church life. Many also sit on the committees that advise the vestry on finances, the facility, outreach, and personnel. In addition to each member’s individual areas of oversight, the vestry meets monthly to advise the rector and make decisions related to the church’s finances and facilities.
Vestry members are elected to staggered three-year terms. Any confirmed member of Restoration is eligible to stand for election to the vestry. Elections are held every year in November.
