While God and the Bible are the ultimate authority for St. Francis in the Fields, there is a leadership structure to keep the day-to-day operations and ministry of the church moving correctly.
The leadership of St. Francis in the Fields has a few integral parts. First, the Vestry – the Vestry provides oversight, vision and guidance to the corporate side of the church. Second, the clergy - our clergy leadership includes The Rev. Simon Barnes, Interim Rector and The Rt. Rev. Russell E. Jacobus, Interim Associate Rector and Bishop-in-Residence who provide the leadership and everyday decision making for the paid staff and most importantly the spiritual side of the church. The paid staff is made up of full-time ministry staff, full-time support staff, and part-time ministry and support staff.
At the end of the day, the St. Francis in the Fields leadership hopes that the office work our staff completes reflects God and brings the members and attendees that much closer to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
