On May 15, we received the names of all interested candidates for our nationally posted rector position. Our team was ecstatic to finally get to know these people and understand how they would possibly fit into our Immanuel home.
Introductory emails were sent and subsequent calls were made to set up first interviews via Zoom. These first interviews took place between May 23 and June 7, with all search Team members present. The second week of June, we narrowed the field slightly and proceeded to organize our next level of questions, more specific to each candidate. Our second interviews also took place via Zoom and occurred June 26-29, again with all team members present. We narrowed the field further. These final candidate names have been submitted to the Diocesan Standing Committee for approval.
This week, July 3, these final candidates are invited to join our treasurer for a 20 minute finance presentation. Learning about Immanuel’s finances we believe is an important step towards being as transparent as possible. Our next steps will be to check references, and invite candidates for in-person interviews. Stay tuned!
