Dear Congregation and Friends of St. Stephen’s,
We have been busy compiling the St. Stephen’s Parish Survey. This survey will be used to further our understanding of what your hopes and dreams for St. Stephen’s are as we continue the process of calling a new rector. St. Stephen’s is a diverse population and as such we wanted to utilize multiple tools to receive information that will guide the search. Thus, in addition to the survey, we will hold individual interviews and small group discussions. All of this information will be used exclusively by the Search Committee, so your honest and frank comments will be solicited and honored. We will be building a Parish Profile that will be uploaded to the St. Stephen’s website for future candidates to view in order to understand who St. Stephen’s is, has been and hopes to be. Prior to the completion of the profile, the congregation and Vestry will have an opportunity to review and comment on the profile. The following is the link to the on-line survey.
If you have not done so, please complete this survey as soon as you can. If you are not sure if your survey was received electronically, please email Pam Poppe and she will check it for you and get back to you.
We ask that you hold us in prayer and vigilance as we continue this sacred ministry of calling a new rector. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact one of us. We welcome and want your input.
May the blessings of Jesus Christ be with us,
St. Stephen’s Search Committee Officers:
Helen Patmon, Co-Chair
Steve Switzer, Co-Chair
Pam Poppe, Communications Secretary
Emily Sherwood, Recording Secretary
