Our Leadership

On behalf of our leadership team, we are glad you’re interested in Church of the Ascension. Our leadership team is far larger than the clergy and program staff pictured in the photos below. It includes an exceptional Vestry (our governing body) and dozens of volunteers who serve people in Christian ministry.

To follow are the names and emails of our paid clergy and staff. You can access a brief bio for each of our leaders by clicking on their names.
