Vestry: Class of 2026

Vestry Class of 2026


Bill Davies
Bill and his wife, Polly, have been members of Good Shepherd since their move to Austin in 2007. Bill has been involved with many Good Shepherd activities, primary among them is his ten year commitment to Education for Ministry, first as a participant and for the last six years, as a mentor. Bill and Polly continue to volunteer their time at the Hill, a special place for them. Prior to moving to Austin, Bill served as Treasurer and Senior Warden of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Amarillo, during the time the parish was rebuilding from a fire that completely destroyed the sanctuary and parish hall.


Elizabeth Ann Gates
Elizabeth Ann joined Good Shepherd in 1982 and serves in a variety of parish ministies, including Trinity Streets, leading quiet days, as a Lay Eucharistic Minister, and as a previous member of the vestry. The church has been important to Elizabeth Ann since childhood, and she has studied theology and liturgy, completing a Master of Arts in Religion at the Seminary of the Southwest and studying spiritual direction. She consults with Episcopal schools and parishes and other nonprofits for strategic planning and leadership development and helps to design programs for spiritual growth.


Sarah Haegelin
Sarah grew up attending St. Philip's Episcopal Church in her hometown of Uvalde, Texas. Since then, she has found growth, comfort, and community within Episcopal churches while she attended Texas A&M University, through the years she and her husband Brian spent living and working in San Antonio, and finally here at Good Shepherd, a parish that has felt like home to her, Brian, and their three sons for ten years. When her oldest was born, Sarah transitioned from a career in the nonprofit sector to staying home with her boys and volunteering in various roles within the community and their schools, including recently as PTA President at Doss Elementary. A lifelong art lover, Sarah enjoys painting as a way to connect with others and a means to fundraise for causes close to her heart.


Will Jones
Will Jones joined the Good Shepherd family in 2013 with the encouragement of his wife Nancy McAllister.  He attends the campus at the Hill primarily, and he says that it reminds him of the small congregation in which he grew up in New Braunfels where his father, a Presbyterian minister, was the pastor for about 25 years. Will looks forward to helping with the outreach efforts that Good Shepherd is actively conducting and to welcoming new members as warmly as he has been received into the Good Shepherd family. His daughter-in-law Margaret Jones previously served on the vestry, and his son Will Jones has been active at both campuses for several years.


Suzanne Wolfrom
Suzanne Wolfrom was baptized in the Episcopal Church and grew up attending weekly services and Sunday school at an Episcopal church in Bethesda, Maryland. After moving to Texas, she married her husband, Stan, and settled in Beaumont where they raised two daughters. In Beaumont, Suzanne served as Director of Finance & Development at All Saints Episcopal School. After they became empty nesters, Suzanne and Stan decided to relocate to Austin, and they joined Good Shepherd in 2017. Attending Good Shepherd felt like coming home, Suzanne says. They were stunned to find so many old friends and familiar faces from Beaumont and Austin sitting the in pews next to them, and the members of Good Shepherd whom they didn’t know were genuine and welcoming.
