We will begin accepting nominations for the clergy search committee on Sunday. Nominations will remain open for four weeks. The search is an involved process, expected to last up to a year. During parts of the process, the committee will be meeting as often as once per week.
The clergy search process relies to a high degree on trust: trust in God to guide the process, and trust in those we charge to serve on the committee to work faithfully on behalf of the whole church. As you consider nominations, think of those in the parish with some of the following characteristics:
- Faithfulness in worship and prayer
- Good listening skills
- Respect for confidentiality
- Good organizational skills
A nomination sheet will be included in the worship bulletin beginning this week and for the next four weeks. Drop your nominations in the offering plate, or give them to a vestry member. The committee will begin its work after Easter.
