The Vestry is a team of leaders at Church of the Cross who work with our rector, Christian Ruch, in giving oversight to the overall mission and work of the church. Their duties include considering and approving ministry decisions and plans which affect the overall church community, preparing an annual budget, reviewing the financial reports of the church, overseeing the care and stewardship of church assets, and praying regularly for the needs of the church. Those considered for vestry are people who have served at Church of the Cross in a variety of functions and have demonstrated a consistent love and concern for the people of our community.

The current members of the vestry are Elizabeth Carlson, Sam Hamer, Matt Huston, Jamie Kaihoi, and Justin Tennison. If you would like to speak to a member of our vestry, please call our church office, 952-933-3686, and we will put you in touch with one of them.
