Vestry Member (Term Expires 2019)
Joe Barbercheck and his wife Chelsea became members of St. Paul’s in the fall of 2013 after moving to West Roxbury. The kindness and welcome that was extended to them made St. Paul’s their obvious spiritual home. Joe served on the Outreach Committee for two years and currently contributes to our Lay Eucharistic Minister and Greeter ministries. Chelsea has taught church school and coordinated Fellowship Hour, and both have enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of volunteer efforts in support of the Dedham Food Pantry and DARE Family Services. Raised in Northwest Indiana, Joe moved to New Orleans for undergraduate and graduate studies at Tulane University. He currently works as the Associate Director of Research Safety at Boston University, where he met Chelsea during her post-doctoral training. Joe’s free time is spent on Russian literature, baseball, MBA studies, and occasionally escaping to warmer climes from the New England winter.
