The Rt. Rev. Julian Dobbs is the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of the Living Word and has oversight of the clergy and congregations in the diocese. He and his wife Brenda have made their home in Northern Virginia since 2006.
The Rev. Steven Wedgeworth is the rector of Christ Church Anglican, and he began his ministry in the parish in January 2022. Steven (M.Div., Reformed Theological Seminary) has been a pastor in several churches since 2008. He has taught humanities at Christian high schools, and he occasionally writes on theology, church history, and philosophy. Steven is married to Anna, and they have three children.
The vestry is the elected governing board of the church. It is made up of two churchwardens and three vestry members, and it works in a close partnership with the rector. In terms of ultimate division of labor, the rector exercises final oversight of the spiritual life of the congregation while the vestry oversees the temporal affairs, including the stewardship of finances, property, and personnel. The vestry and rector work together to deepen the parish’s spiritual health and growth and advance its mission to South Bend.
