2018 Vestry Academy in Florence
April 27-28

Inform, Aspire, Affirm

Academy focus will be on:

  • Clarity of Vestry/Bishop’s Committee roles and responsibilities
  • Best practices for Vestries/Bishop’s Committee, treasurers, wardens, secretaries
  • Combining the spiritual with the temporal
  • Managing parish ministries
  • Shared leadership
  • What is the mission of the church, what is the mission of the Vestry?
  • Understanding and implementing Clergy wellness practices
  • Dealing with different (and sometimes loud) voices in the parish
  • Being part of a larger whole: role of the Convocation
  • Regional issues (legal, financial regulations, etc.)

Shared leadership

We recognize the need for more frequent formation of Vestry members,
officers and Bishop’s Committees, with a focus
not only on Vestry basics but on the theology of shared leadership.

How do we work collaboratively to create a vision and a plan that reflects God’s dream for the congregation?

How do we balance God’s mission and vision with sound stewardship?

How do we identify and incorporate new leaders?
