The Rev. Lynne A Grifo is now serving as Interim Rector of All Saints Church, Bay Head, NJ, effective December 1, 2014. Grifo was most recently Interim Pastor of St. John’s Church in Park Slope, Brooklyn. This is the fifth congregation in succession she has served as pastor and transition specialist across four dioceses. Grifo’s professional experience is well-suited to interim ministry and she enjoys the challenges each different context offers. From 1999-2008 she was the associate coordinator of the Office for Ministry Development on the Presiding Bishop’s staff at the Episcopal Church Center in NYC. In 2008 she was invited to become the interim program director for the Episcopal Church Foundation in NYC, where she coordinated the fellowship grant program and developed workshops for vestries.
Photography is Grifo’s primary avocation, and she loves spending time contemplating art; she also enjoys walking, traveling, and reading mysteries.
