…Clergy, Staff, Vestry

All Saints Episcopal Church has a wonderful leadership and administration team!


Our Rector (the priest in charge of the parish) is the Reverend Joseph Farnes.

Fr. Joseph grew up in eastern Idaho. He graduated from Whitman College with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in religion, and along the way he discovered the joy of the Episcopal Church. He earned his Master of Divinity degree from Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, TX. After serving a parish in western Massachusetts and spending time exploring monastic spirituality, he was called as rector of All Saints in 2019.

All Saints is also glad to have retired clergy to help out! The Reverend Robin Finch helps with worship when Fr. Joseph is out of town, and the Rev. Deacon Mary Ellen Gallagher assists with our social justice ministries and helps at the altar.


Our Chief Administrative Officer and Event Planner is Nicole Geibel. She is an Idaho native and wears many hats: bookkeeping, bulletins, newsletters, events, social media, as well as, being the friendly face and voice to greet people who stop by or call in!

Our Music Director is Shauna Emara. Shauna brings her passion for music and is always eager to lift up people’s musical talents! Shauna loves helping people share their musical talents in worship and celebration!


Our Senior Warden (the chief lay member of the parish) is Al Borg-Borm.

Our Junior Warden (the lay member in charge of buildings and grounds) is Barb Tool. A retired teacher from Nebraska, Barb brings midwestern humor and diligence to all that she does to help us take care of our building and landscaping.

Our Vestry (the governing board of the parish) includes Carolyn Cornwall, Lindy Neufeld, Julie Walker, Dean Hagerman, & Laura Penney. Our vestry is also assisted by Jen LaForge as clerk, and Mary Kay Peterson & Sherrill Geddes as co-treasurers.
