After many weeks of thoughtful discussion and discernment, the rector search committee is pleased to announce our approach to calling a new priest. Our approach recognizes that our future must include children, youth, and their families, increased lay involvement in the parish, and financial solvency.
Within a full-time position, the new rector will be asked to dedicate 75% of his or her time to the ordinary duties of a rector and 25% as the catalyst for strengthening our lay-led programs for children and youth. The “youth” portion of the rector’s salary will be covered by an endowment fund restricted to that purpose. The “rector” portion of the salary will be covered by our operating budget. Having a preacher on only three of four Sundays will increase the visible lay involvement of the parish and reinforce our commitment to financial discipline.
We hope to post the position soon and will be sure to keep you up to date about our progress. The committee comprises Barb Volko, Connie Shultz, Colt Flue, Carl Burnam, and Tom Fairchild. We are grateful for your faith in us and look forward to calling a rector for this exciting next chapter in our mutual ministry.
SEARCH TEAM MEMBERS (L-R): Tom Fairchild, Connie Shultz, Colt Fleu, Barb Volko, Carl Burnam
