Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
The Vestry has the privilege and duty of issuing a call for a new Dean. On behalf of the Vestry, we are pleased to announce the newly formed Search Committee whose role will be to facilitate this process and to recommend a candidate to the Vestry. The members of the Search Committee who have been prayerfully selected are:
John Hargrove, ex officio
Jay Ezelle, ex officio
Don Menendez, Chair
The work of the Search Committee will begin immediately. We invite you to assist us with our work as we begin the process of discernment and search for a new Dean.
First, we ask for your prayers as we begin this journey. Please join the Vestry and our Search Committee in offering prayers daily for the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit as we discern God‘s will for our church and its next Dean.
Second, we encourage you to share with us the names of individuals whom you feel should be considered. We have an email address specifically for the search: DeanSearch@CathedralAdvent.com. Any background information you can provide would be helpful. In doing so, be mindful that confidentiality of the work of the Search Committee is essential. So, while each of the above members will be an open and willing listener, please understand that they will not be able to provide any feedback to you on any suggested candidate. We thank you for your patience and understanding of the need for confidentiality throughout this process.
Finally, later this summer we will be conducting a parish-wide survey designed to help guide the Search Committee as they carry out their work. Your input is important and will be greatly appreciated.
With God’s grace, we look forward to a successful call of the Cathedral Church of the Advent’s next Dean.
