The Rector's Warden

Steve Abrecht

I have been a member of Saint Matthew’s since 2000. I came to Saint Matthew’s after moving from Saint Paul, MN with my wife Jennifer – who grew up as a member of Saint Matthew’s. I am serving as a member of the Vestry for a second time and this is also my second time as Senior Warden.


As Senior Warden, I am the primary elected lay leader of the parish and serve as the principal liaison between the parish and the rector. The Senior Warden works alongside the parish Rector and together they share the mission and vision of the parish and manage its operations as well. The role of Senior Warden includes facilitating the monthly Vestry meeting and being accessible to other church officers and to all members of the Parish.


An active member of Saint Matthew’s, I sing in the choir, am a Lector and Intercessor, have been a delegate to the Diocesan Convention, and chaired the planning committee for Saint Matthew’s Centennial in 2016. I love the way Saint Matthew’s embodies the notion of open hearts and caring hands and the fellowship this warm and caring community practices with everyone.
