filtered by Leadership, Vestry
By Janie Kirt Morris
Ya sea si su junta parroquial está formada por seis o por dieciséis, los miembros son líderes de la fe de suma importancia en su iglesia.

“I really had a bad experience my first time on the vestry,” Anne said to me. Of course that upset me — in my years as a pastor I really did all I could, especially with my senior warden, to make our work as a vestry EFFECTIVE, first, but also enjoyable. Indeed, I hoped vestry persons would have some fun.
