Vestry Candidate: Kim Montgomery

Kim Montgomery

My name is Kim Montgomery. I have been a member of St Martins since 2004. I hope to

serve a new Vestry term beginning 2023.


I have been married to my husband, Kent, for 34 years. We are blessed with 2 healthy adult

kids: our oldest graduated last May from the University of Missouri/Rolla and our youngest

has just started onto the college path at Mizzou. I taught French in the Kirkwood School

District for 14 years and loved teaching.


When our youngest was born, we decided that I would stay home with our children, which

was truly a blessing to me and to my family. Now that both of our “kids” are nearly “flown”,

when I received an unexpected request to fill in a long term sub position, I decided to

explore a possible return to teaching. I am currently substitute teaching and am looking at

additional options for working outside the home for at least a few more years. As a family,

we enjoy hiking, biking, being outdoors and spending time together.


I have been an active volunteer in both the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America, and

remain very active in the co-ed Scouting program called Venturing at the Crew, District and

Council level. I enjoyed many years of volunteering with the Parkway Schools and at St

John’s /Mercy hospital to support families with babies in the Neonative Intensive Care Unit.

I have been active at St. Martins throughout the years, teaching Sunday School, working

with the Garage Sale, helping the ECW get started back up again, helping organize a “Mom’s

Meals” program, and helping with VBS, among others. One of the first activities I became

involved with was the VBS program when my kids were very young. That positive

experience for my family led us to get more involved with St. Martins. Both of my kids

completed confirmation at St. Martin’s and we enjoyed helping get the Youth Group active

again for several years. I joined the cadre of parishioners teaching Sunday School again this

year and have enjoyed that immensely.


I’ve always enjoyed working alongside the people of St. Martin’s and if elected, look

forward to serving the entire congregation as a member of Vestry for the upcoming term. I

have served as the Clerk to the Vestry for the past 12 months, completing the term of the

former Clerk when her family relocated. There was a bit of a learning curve to get fully up to

speed with the Clerk duties and although there are additional aspects of serving as Clerk

I’m still discovering, I feel like I finally have a reasonably good grasp of the responsibilities.

As a member of the Vestry, I hope to serve St. Martin’s however I am able and in whatever

ways identified as valuable to the parishioners and the church.
