A Search Committee Update
from Pat Walmsley, Committee and Vestry Member
The Search Committee continues to work diligently towards finding the best priest for our parish. The highlight of last week was having conversation with Jonathan Harris from the diocese. He advised the group that he is hopeful to have several candidates available for interviews in the next few weeks. The job description is uploaded on the diocese website.
He advised that there are more churches searching for a minister than there are candidates. The diocese will review candidates for eligibility prior to receiving possible candidates to interview. He said that our compensation package is a great opportunity to entice interested individuals. He also advised that we have mock interviews and practice the technology so that the process is smooth.
Questions have been constructed, the process has been reviewed, and the group is getting excited for our first candidate. We will keep you posted even though we will hoor confidentiality. That being said, if you know of someone you feel will be a good fit for us, please let us know so we can reach out. Your prayers for discernment are always appreciated.
