Our particular thanks goes to the Search Committee, chaired by Mike Palmer, for their intense 18 months of surveys, small group discussions, listening to individual concerns by parishioners, research of potential candidates, developing interview formats, conducting Skype interviews with 4 of the candidates, bringing in the final 2 candidates for 3-day stints, including interviews, church services, and social time. The committee calculated that each member had spent approx. 470 working hours during the 18 months. We are very grateful for the parish’s prayers and faith during this time of discernment, and the Holy Spirit’s work in this search.
