Our Vicar Transition Process

August 28th, 2017 by Brett Gaspers

As we enter into the first phase of finding our next vicar, we have selected and are praying for our Profile Committee.  Its members are Rick Paul, Valerie Kelley, Greg Walrath, Andrea Riseden-Perry, Bill Plankenhorn and Carol Rypkema.

Together they will oversee a survey of our congregation members, review the feedback with a consultant from the Diocese, and author a document which tries to paint a picture of who St Hilda St Patrick is; how we feel called to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our broader neighborhood; and what traits and experience we are looking for in our next vicar.

The written profile must be an open, honest representation of our church, and it must present a welcoming invitation to others.

Once our profile has been completed and blessed by Bishop Greg, it will be posted to our website and to a search website for interested clergy to see and respond.

At that point we will then enter into our next phase – the Search Committee.

Please join us in praying for our Profile Committee and for each other in the months to come.

In peace and grace,

Michael Rader
Senior Warden
