The Search Committee has completed its interviews with our most recent candidates. After much thought, prayer and deliberation, the Committee has decided not to call either of the candidates to be our next rector. We know you are disappointed to be receiving this news, and we would rather not be delivering it. However, we are committed to finding a rector that best fits our profile. Our next rector will lead our congregation for hopefully the next decade or so. It is not a decision that can be made out of convenience or expediency. We know the right person for us is out there.
We will be working closely with Bishop Skirving’s office to initiate our next search, and it is recommended that we do that starting in late January. At that time, we will post our profile and solicit candidates with the anticipated interviews and selection being in late spring 2020.
As many of you know, we had a two-year interim period between Charles and Phil. It looks like that will be the case again this time. But, the Search Committee is committed to finding the right person to lead our church in the coming years. In the meantime, Tom Wilson has agreed to continue on as our Extended Supply Clergy.
