Kevin P Monteith
Organist and Digital Presence Director
Kevin P. Monteith came to St John’s in 1995 as an usher for a wedding. After the wedding rehearsal, he got permission to play the organ. While he enjoyed it, he did not think anything would come of the event.
A few weeks later, Fr Dean, the priest, asked if he wanted to play the organ during the week to keep it going, and one of his dreams came true. Not too long later, he started to play for the 8 am service and never left.
Besides playing the organ, Kevin wears many hats, like preparing the church for services, plus he heads the digital outreach, including the website, social media, and videos.
Outside of music, Kevin enjoys traveling and spending time with his nephew and human and fur nieces. He also is the “Kev” of Travels with Kev, where he helps people travel, mainly by rail.
Office Volunteer and more
Paul Haynes helps keep the church ticking! He makes sure the phone messages and emails get answered, the mail is dealt with, service aids get put together, and he takes the phrase “other duties as assigned” seriously.
Book Keeper and more
Sharon Twist helps ensure our bills get paid and deposits make it into the correct accounts.
She also is one of our readers and morning prayer leaders.
Our Church’s Lay Leadership
Besides these fine people, St John’s has a group of pledging church members who act as our “board of directors,” This group is known as the Vestry.
This group of people leads the church if there is no priest in charge, and if there is, they work with the priest.
