Rector Search Committee Update

May 12, 2022

The Rector Search Committee has re-posted the announcement of the position opening in the Jobs and Calls section of the online Episcopal News Service. Interested applicants will submit their resume, personal OTM file, and letter of interest to Canon Jason Roberson, our Transition Officer at the Diocese for initial screening.

The committee continues to meet weekly and as we actively research potential candidates, we welcome and encourage recommendations from the parish and will consider them carefully.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers for the rector search process and all who are contributing to it.
