Clerk of Session
Hello! My name is Betsy Stiefvater and I am the Clerk of Session. I have been a member of RPC for 4 years and find this church to be full of wonderful, fun, and friendly people, who have helped me progress and grow in my faith. I am excited to be a part of RPC’s leadership at this time in our history. We are always learning and trying new things, discerning where God wants our church to be involved in our community and the world.
As the Clerk of the Session, I am responsible for making sure that the actions of the Church are well-documented and consistent with Presbytery policies of a well-run Church. As such, we maintain records of governance and committee meetings that meet the expectations of the congregation and our governing bodies. We are subject to annual audits and it is my responsibility to make sure that our records and operations meet high standards.
I have been married to my husband, Joe Draetta, for 12 years, and we have 3 young children. We also are the proud “parents” of 2 cats, a dog and various fish. I am a veterinarian (part- time), so I have to have animals around!
