2017 Church Council

Our Church Council is presided over by our Council President, Chris Moessner and Vice President, Mark Chandler. Each committee member serves on the council as well as chairs their own sub-committee. (Please see below).

There are numerous ministries at Saint Matthew’s and we organize many of them through committees.  These groups meet on different nights through the month to organize, plan, & support the events and programs here at Saint Matthew’s.
