Faith Community Transition — Search Update

Saint Paul's ChurchChurch News

discoverThe Search Committee has been named by the vestry. It was a hard decision to choose from among the wonderful candidates who offered to serve. Our criteria for selection included:

  • Limiting the team to no more than seven members
  • Gender and age balance
  • Good representation of various years of membership at Saint Paul’s
  • With the exception of one person to provide continuity from the Discovery Team, we chose people who had not served previously on the Discovery or MAP teams
  • Availability over the summer to commit to interviewing all candidates

The members of the Search Team are: J. J. Austrian (Senior Warden and chair of the Search Team); Beth Carlson (Junior Warden and chair of the Discovery Team); David Ashworth, Ashley Dow, Meredith Johnson, Pringle Rodman, and Linda Rosedahl.

The Search Team will receive names and profiles of rector candidates, conduct interviews, and make a recommendation to the vestry. The process is expected to be completed sometime this fall.

Thank you to all who have served so far on the MAP and Discovery Teams, and to all those who offered to be part of the Search Team. Please continue to hold this process in your prayers.


A Prayer for the Parish

Almighty and everliving God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth, hear our prayers for this parish family. Strengthen the faithful, arouse the careless, and restore the penitent. Grant us all things necessary for our common life, and bring us all to be of one heart and mind within your holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
