Annual Meeting & Vestry Elections
May 2 at 10:30 am - 11:15 am
Sunday, May 2nd
St. David’s will hold its Annual Meeting on Sunday, May 2 at 10:30 a.m. Part of the Annual Meeting work is to elect four new Vestry persons to serve four years in leading and supporting the mission and ministry of our church. Vestry members are required to be Communicants in good standing.
The upcoming vestry slate is as follows:
Alison joined St. David’s in 2004 with her husband, Rob, and her first daughter from the Church of the Redeemer in Bryn Mawr. Three more children followed later, all baptized in different spaces at St. David’s – the old chapel, the old church and the new chapel.
Alison has been involved in several ministries at St. David’s, serving on Family Ministries, Stewardship and Fellowship commissions. She currently coordinates the feedings at St. John’s in Norristown and is very grateful for all the meals donated over the years. She’s been a Sunday school teacher for years and continues to be active in Family Ministries. Her strengths include feeding hungry people, making pies, and telling it like it is.
A New York native, Alison moved to the area when she married Rob in 2000. Prior to life on the Main Line, she was a Manhattan meeting planner for a public relations firm. She is actively involved in parent programs at her children’s schools and has served on countless volunteer committees in PA and in Maine, where the family spends the summer. She and Rob have 4 children and a golden retriever/Irish setter mix and currently live in Bryn Mawr.
Leslie was searching for a spiritual and faith-based home, and she found that in St. David’s in 2004. In the Spring of 2005, both her boys were baptized at the Easter Vigil. Coming from another faith background, she was so moved by her experience at St. David’s and the church community that she wanted to fully commit to the Episcopal faith and was received in the Episcopal Church in 2006. Leslie has been an active member of St. David’s and has been involved with Christian Education every year as a teacher, organizer, and enthusiastic Jack-of-all-Trades support since joining the church. She has served on the Family Ministries, Outreach and Fellowship committees and currently is on the Family Ministries and Outreach Commissions. Leslie has enjoyed being a lay assistant and a Confirmation Mentor. She has been chairperson for the Midway portion of the Fair for many years. Leslie has a particular fondness for the generous outreach ministries of St. David’s. She had the honor of going to Uganda in 2017. She leads the Mitten Tree outreach for St. Gabriel’s Church each year and jumps at the chance to help out the amazing St. James School.
Leslie is an Occupational Therapist in elementary schools and has been a practicing Occupational Therapist for 28 years. Leslie has a B.A. in Psychology from Dickinson College and attended Thomas Jefferson University for her Occupational Therapy. She sits on the board of Echoes Around the World. Leslie has been married to Todd for 29 years. With a Ph.D. in neuropsychology, Todd is the Brain Injury Clinical Specialist at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. Sons, Hayden and Owen have also been active at St. David’s. They have been involved in Youth Group, working with youth each Sunday, and mission trips to Uganda, Guatemala, and Washington D.C. Hayden attends Temple University and Owen attends Elon University.
Tim grew up in Radnor and has been a parishioner at St. David’s since 1999 when he was baptized, married and confirmed in that same year. Over the years, he has enjoyed volunteering for the Growing in Faith Campaign, St. Augustine’s Feeding Ministry-Norristown, St. David’s Church Fair & Auction, Interfaith Hospitality Network, Rise Against Hunger, Men’s Retreat and the Newcomer’s Table and dinners. His wife Cindy has served as chairperson for the Fair, Newcomers and the Shepherding ministries and both sons enjoyed serving as Acolytes. He is blessed by all of the ministries and friends of the St. David’s Episcopal Church community and looks forward to having the opportunity to serve on the Vestry.
Tim graduated from Radnor High School in 1989, and attended Susquehanna University where he received a BA in business management. Tim has worked in the real estate / residential mortgage business for over 25 years, and currently manages a team in the Mid-Atlantic States for CrossCountry Mortgage.
He resides in Devon with his wife Cindy and twin 19 year old sons Garrett and Justin who are completing their freshman year at the University of South Carolina and Clemson University. He enjoys spending the summer in Stone Harbor with his family and has done so for nearly 35 years.
