Search Committee Update: Please Complete Your Parish Survey!
Today we are sending out by regular mail and email a survey designed to collect your thoughts on where we are now as a parish, where we should be going, and what we will need in a new rector. The deadline for returning the survey is Friday, April 6, however, please complete it as soon as you are able. The search committee will begin tabulating and recording results as the surveys are received. From the information you provide, the committee will write a parish profile to present to applicants. The survey includes both multiple choice and open-ended questions. Your honest, prayerful, carefully considered answers will be the foundation of our efforts to call a new rector to All Saints. Please remember to lift up All Saints Church, the Search Committee, the Vestry, and the search process to God daily in your prayers.
The newly assembled search committee has begun its work on your behalf. The diocese fortunately has clear and helpful guidelines to lead us through the process that will end with the call of a new rector. The critical first step is to develop a profile of our parish to present to applicants. This key step includes outlining All Saints’ vision and mission, defining our unique characteristics as a community, and spelling out the qualities we want in a spiritual leader. You will soon be receiving a survey in which you will be asked for your thoughts on these questions. Your participation is vital to the success of the search process. Most importantly, the committee needs your constant prayers for wisdom and discernment in the process. We will grow in Christ together on this journey. You will be apprised regularly on the committee’s progress in the Weekly Update. Thank you in advance for filling out the survey as soon as possible after you receive it.
