All church members play a role in governance, from decisions in parish life to our national policy-making body, the General Convention. Lay and ordained people, together with the church's bishops, share the responsibilities of ministry, oversight and legislation. The ministers of the church are lay persons, deacons, priests and bishops.

The Rev. Gregory Baker, Curate email@example.com
Greg began to discern a call to the priesthood during his senior year of college, when an interest in theology and a deep desire to serve his neighbor began to manifest in a path towards ordained ministry. He believes that the Church – the Body of Christ – has a vital role to play in caring for the most vulnerable in our communities and is a home for everyone, a place where we work to re-knit broken bonds and strengthen existing ones while always stretching towards realizing that kingdom to come that we’ve only seen glimpses of.
Greg has a number of passions and interests that keep him busy when he's not working. He has played soccer since he was able to stand, and continues to play when he can. He loves photography and the way that a camera can capture and tell stories in ways words cannot, and in a “past life” explored becoming a photojournalist. Volunteering and community service have been an important part of his life since he was a kid when his Mom would take he & his sister to work at local food pantries. Greg is also interested in the reform of the prison industrial complex and working with the incarcerated. He enjoys cooking and experimenting with new ingredients in the kitchen, usually while listening to a wide variety of music. He loves to laugh, tell stories, and is beginning to explore getting a dog!
