The Vestry of The Church of the Cross


Front Row: Bonnie Linne and Natalie Mann
Back Row: Stew Brown, Rod Musselman, Mill Simmons and Ray Cook

The Church of the Cross Vestry is a special group of folks who have been called to serve the Lord and this very special congregation at my side. They understand the magnitude of our corporate and personal blessings; and they understand, too, that with these blessings comes the obligation to bless others in His Name - praise God! their goals are simple: be mindful of the challenge before us to make a Kingdom difference in our time for all time; and to grasp even more firmly the faith that is ours and instill in us an even greater will to reach and risk boldly for the Lord in ways that others might say are beyond "the cutting edge." Last year Bishop Lawrence shared with me his belief that few vestries anywhere are grappling with such a far reaching vision and taking so seriously their calling to be good stewards, not just of the present realities, but also of future opportunities. My admiration for the Vestry the Lord has called to serve Him in this place is unbounded.

In His power and for His glory,

Father Chuck Owens
