Search Committee Update - March 23
First Christian Church has appointed a Search Committee to conduct the search for a new Senior Minister. The committee is chaired by Alan Parsons. The other members of the group are Patty Rankin, Kathy Olliges, Gary Fogle, Tonya Bordy, Scott Lanter, Gracelyn Jack and Amanda Stratton. The committee is meeting every other week and will send updates to the congregation and regular intervals. See below for their first update and for our search timeline.
March 23, 2021
The committee met March 23 to finalize the draft of the congregational survey that will be used to gather input from members of our congregation for use in the senior minister search effort. The committee also selected a survey platform to distribute and collect responses and has submitted the survey draft to a survey expert for final review and comments. We still anticipate distributing the survey by early April.
This survey will be distributed electronically to those with an email address and by mail to all others. All members of FCC will be encouraged to complete the survey. To facilitate the compilation of the results, electronic submissions are encouraged but, of course, written submissions will also be accepted. Even if only one invitation is emailed or mailed to a family, EACH FAMILY MEMBER IS URGED TO COMPLETE AND SUBMIT THEIR OWN SURVEY RESPONSE.
Please continue to keep the committee’s work in your thoughts and prayers.
Alan Parsons, Committee Chair
