Search Committee Communique - July 27, 2021
The committee met on July 7 to meet the new Regional Minister and to be briefed on the best way to evaluate minister applications (Minister Profiles). As promised, we have received numerous profiles and the committee met on July 27 to begin the arduous task of screening the applications that have been submitted to date. Submissions will continue to be accepted through August 18. The committee will meet weekly over the four weeks to review the profiles, conduct telephonic interviews with selected candidates before choosing the most promising candidates for in-person interviews. The real heavy lifting work of the committee is just beginning, so we ask for your patience, prayers and support. May the Holy Spirit continue to guide our deliberations.
