WTF is a “Verger?”
Ah! Good question. I chose the name Merger Verger for two reasons:
- the role of a verger – an ecclesiastical position – is much like that of an acquisition integration manager, and
- well, the words rhymed and rhymes are supposed to be good … memorable and all that. We’ll see.
So what does a verger do? Whatever it takes to enable a church to function smoothly and effectively. He does not preach or practice rites or any of that stuff but he acts behind the scenes, usually unsung, to make sure the business of churching can succeed.
