For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us: prophecy, in proportion to faith; ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching; the exhorter, in exhortation; the giver, in generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness.  (NRSV. Romans 12:4-8)

Leadership in this congregation is the duty of the Rector, the Wardens, and the Vestry.  The Vestry meets once per month, or sometimes more often, and solicits advice from various committees.
