Meet The Search Committee, February 12, 2017

The Search Committee rector selection process is moving forward on schedule and we will keep you informed each step of the way. The bulletin board in the parish house is one of the communication channels we will use to keep you updated as we add major tasks and progress toward our goal of selecting our new rector. The four major phases of our search process are:

  • Self Study – February through July
  • Discernment Planning – July through September
  • Finalists Selection – August through October
  • New Rector Selection – October through December

The Search Committee welcomes and appreciates your prayers of support and thoughtful comments and feedback as we continue on our journey.

A Search Committee Prayer

“Almighty and ever-living God, we pray for a Rector with experience as a Pastor and Priest who will lead us on our continuing mission to be God’s presence in the world, and who is passionate and imaginative about faith formation. We seek someone who is spiritually grounded in their communication with us — both as an inspiring preacher and compassionate listener. We look for a Pastor who is sincere and accessible, who possesses warmth and a sense of humor. We pray for someone to join us on our spiritual journey, recognizing that we are comfortable being at disparate places along that path. We seek a Rector who lives in the present, but is always open to the future and is sensitive to the needs of our community. May our next Rector make our parishioners and our visitors feel that they are remembered, that they matter, and that they are loved. As we acknowledge this mutual effort and commit to being active partners, we offer our prayers, encouragement, support, and love for our new Rector.” Amen.
