Rector. The Reverend Jennifer Holder
Vocational Deacons. Presently, two vocational deacons serve St. Christopher’s, Deacon Melissa Wafer- Cross and Deacon Douglas Cashell. Theirs are non-stipendiary positions. Both Melissa and
Doug are retired, though Melissa still teaches part time at All Saints Episcopal School. We currently have one parishioner who is in training as a Postulant for Holy Orders to the Diaconate, Alvin Stofel.
Additional Clergy Support. Retired priest, the Rev. Charles Bowyer and retired deacon, the Rev. Deacon Frances Bessire have blessed us in recent years by serving when needed. Fr. Charles has been
extremely generous with his time and talents and continues to serve periodically during our transition. Deacon Fran also fills in whenever asked.
Organist/Choirmaster. Dr. Jane Ann Wilson, a retired faculty member from Texas Tech University, has held the position of Organist/Choirmaster for many years. In addition to her musical guidance of the choir, she and two other members of the parish often play in a string quartet, adding beauty to our worship.
Christian Educators. Claire Randolph, Linda Lawson, and Becky DelHotal lead our children’s Christian Education program. Claire and Linda focus on the Sunday morning program, and Becky
provides a program of bible study for a group of neighborhood and parish children on Wednesday evenings. They also assist their counterparts from the other two Episcopal churches in Lubbock in
presenting a joint Vacation Bible School, rotating sites each year.
Administrative Assistants. Kim Garrett performs administrative duties and Linda Swartz oversees church financial matters, both providing shared, part-time office support. The church office is
open Monday– Thursday mornings and Thursday afternoons.
Parish Communicator. Jane Barnes volunteers as the Parish Communicator. In addition to preparing and emailing monthly newsletters, Jane emails prayer requests and other information. A volunteer group prints off a number of newsletters for distribution at church or for mailings to those who still prefer hard copies.
Grounds/Building Keepers. Becky DelHotal serves as the parish sexton and a yard service is used on a ontract basis.
