Profile Committee To Be Formed
At the May 14th Vestry meeting, the Canon to the Ordinary, the Rev. Dr. Marda Steedman-Sanborn gave an overview of the process to call a new rector. The Vestry responsibilities in this process include appointing members to three committees: A Profile, a Search (or Call) and a Transition committee. To start the process, the vestry is seeking seven people to serve on the Profile committee. Their task will be to collect, compile and analyze information about the congregation and write a church profile for review by the Bishop’s office. The process is anticipated to take up to six months, although the duration depends primarily on how frequently the committee meets. Ideally, members of the committee will collectively have good writing and organizational skills as well as facilitation and/or data gathering experience. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please contact Charlie Grass and Eileen Treusch at firstname.lastname@example.org. The vestry intends to appoint individuals to the Profile committee at its June 11th vestry meeting. Committee member diversity is important; interested individuals will be appointed depending upon their skill set, level of
interest and committee needs. The Search and Transition committees’ members will be appointed at a later date.
