Rector Candidates: The Grace Church Self-Study is available here for your review.
Note to the Congregation: The Discernment Committee is now receiving and evaluating applications for the position of Rector at Grace Church. This process must be kept completely confidential to protect the candidates. Please understand that the Committee members are not able to discuss anything regarding the candidates, process or status from this time forward. The following activities will be part of this next phase: screening of applications, phone interviews, follow-up with promising candidates who may be a good fit for our church, visits to potential candidates, in-person interviews, etc. This will take time but we are dedicated to moving forward as fast as we are able. We are confident that God will give direction and lead a new Rector to Grace Church.
Discernment Committee: Donna Caudill, Chair; Richard Asher, Kenneth Garrett, Tim Karney, Shane Pixton, Pat Tucker, Tom Valk
Discernment Committee Prayer: Almighty and everliving God, look favorably upon us, the people of Grace Episcopal Church, in this time of transition as we search for a new rector. We pray for the life of our parish, that we may continue to be guided by your love and strengthened in our mission to serve you through worship, ministry, and fellowship. We pray for our Discernment Committee. Give them patience, endurance and the ability to see the possibilities in each candidate. Open their hearts and minds so that together they may hear your will and discern the rector now known to you alone. Prepare the heart of your chosen candidate to join this community and this community to receive a new rector. Give us your grace to follow where you would lead us, and grant us your peace. Amen.
