Vestry (2024)

I believe I am being called to serve on the Vestry because I have found a family here at St. Martin’s. I strongly believes that I was called to join this community and want to help see it continue to flourish. Currently I am a member of the Welcoming Committee as well as a member of the Evangelism Commission. I served as the greeter at the welcoming table during coffee hour prior to the pandemic.

After an early retirement and the loss of my wife, I moved down to Texas from Massachusetts to be closer to my daughter and her family, as well as my son in California. In my spare time, I enjoy helping out with my grandchildren, the family dog, going to the gym three days a week and fishing.

At another church, I was a member of their men’s club. One of the tasks the men did was hosting the annual Palm Sunday breakfast. I was nicknamed the “Egg Man” as I was charged each year with preparing the scrambled eggs for the congregation. I was also chair of the Pastor’s Committee which gave advice and consent for pastoral duties and recommendations.

I would like to thank you for your consideration as a member of St. Martin’s Vestry.
