What is a vestry?
A vestry is a group of elected lay members called to assist the parish priest and to serve the common good of the congregation. The complete description of vestry duties and responsibilities may be found in Holy Trinity's bylaws.
Kelly Butler | firstname.lastname@example.org
Kelly and her husband Sean were raised in military families, which required that they move and reside in several national and international places most of their early childhood. North Carolina became a long-term home and where they met as teenagers then eventually married after college. Since 2001, they now enjoy raising their children and being a part of the community of beautiful, rural Chatham County.
Before their children were school age, Kelly became increasingly concerned about education for their family and fellow Christian families. They were introduced to K-12 classical, Christian education and immediately became actively involved in founding a non-profit school in 2007. Haw River Christian Academy opened its doors in August 2008. Soon after this was underway, another paradigm shift occurred in their family. Through the school, they were invited into a small group that regularly met in Pittsboro but was connected to an Anglican church based in Durham.
Within a couple years, the small group prayerfully sensed that the Lord was leading it to launch a local Anglican church. While this meant being involved in planting two significant and unique organizations in Chatham County, it was an answer to Kelly’s yearning for home, church, and school life to be well integrated with God’s goodness, truth, and beauty. Thanks be to God!
Outside of her involvement with Church of the Holy Trinity and the school, she is a freelance professional photographer and treasures time to run or hike trails, read, travel, and most of all, spend time with family and friends.
Todd Granger | email@example.com
Todd, his wife Jill, and their three daughters have been praying for a faithful Anglican church in the area since they moved into the county from Carrboro in 1997, and they rejoiced when they learned that All Saints Durham-Chapel Hill was planting a new mission that became Church of the Holy Trinity. Todd is a physician in private practice in Chapel Hill, but will begin an extended sabbatical later this spring to work on a Master's degree in theological studies. He grew up in a small town in central Louisiana where he frequently tramped through the woods, collecting biological specimens with his cousin, spent undergraduate years in New Orleans (Tulane), and medical school years in St Louis (Washington University). He grew up and came to faith in his hometown Baptist church, migrated to the Presbyterians for a while, and was drawn into Anglicanism about twenty-five years ago. He has a near life-long love of history, theology, liturgy, and music.

Former Vestry Members
Owen Moss | firstname.lastname@example.org
Owen and his wife Donna moved in 1989 from the Pacific Northwest state of Washington to the Atlantic coast state of North Carolina. We have three grandchildren (one in Seattle with our son and his wife and two in the Triangle with our daughter and her husband). For Owen, liturgical worship is fairly new. Although Owen received Jesus Christ as his Lord and risen Savior in October of 1970, it was only in September of 2009, after Owen retired from a career in science (aerosol physics and inhalation toxicology research), that God led Owen and Donna to a biblically faithful Anglican fellowship, All Saints Church in Durham. We felt like we had finally come home. Within two months we joined a small group fellowship in Pittsboro. From this small group was planted The Church of the Holy Trinity. Donna and I are very thankful to be allowed to be part of Holy Trinity.
