In October we had a very productive vision statement event where we updated our church’s Vision Statement. This Vision Statement was then approved by the Vestry at our October meeting. The Search Committee also met with Mary MacGregor and Canon to the Ordinary, Kai Ryan from the Diocese for our training on how the overall search process works and how to conduct effective interviews with the various candidates we will be considering.

With all of these very important steps now complete I am very happy to announce that the Diocese has changed our status from pre-search status to active search status. This means that we can now start conducting research and interviews on potential candidates.

As we move forward into this active search phase please feel free to ask us questions about the process and the training that we have been through. Please keep the Search Committee in your prayers that we might be guided to find the best rector for St. Marks.

Charles Teel, Search Committee Chairman
