FROM THE SEARCH COMMITTEE

What Do You Love About Saint Barnabas?

Last week the Search Committee launched its first effort to learn
more about the character, values, and personality of our 
congregation as a whole. Continuing this week and next, 
cards asking are available for you to share your thoughts.  Completed cards will be collected at the services or you can mail it in.  If you didn't get one, we will have them available at the services for the next two weeks (until May 7).

February 13, 2017 - A Message from the Search Committee

In addition to regular announcements at Sunday services and reports to the Vestry, the Search Committee will use this space to provide occasional updates on where we are in the Search journey. 
To formally begin the process of discernment and searching for our new Rector, the Vestry and Search Committee spent half a day in meditation and conversation on Saturday, Feb. 11, facilitated by Elinor Horner, our Search Consultant. 
We reflected on times and places in and around St. Barnabas that we have felt God’s presence, and began to articulate the qualities we seek in a Rector who will honor and nurture those kinds of experiences. 
We also discussed the various roles that the Vestry and Search Committee will play in the Search journey. 
Everyone—not just the Search Committee or Vestry—will have a part to play in the Search. The search for candidates cannot begin until we have created a Parish Profile: a current picture of the strengths, challenges, gifts and wishes of the St. Barnabas community. This document will reflect who we are, who we have been, where we are going, where we hope to go. 
In the months to come, the Search Committee will actively seek your input, your desires, concerns and hopes. The Parish Profile is a vital part of our marketing materials; candidates use the profile to assess whether to apply to a church. You will have ample opportunity to share with the Search Committee the kind of Rector you want. We are committed to giving ample time to this important phase of the work. The more thorough this discernment, the more successful the search is likely to be. 
The Search Committee’s next step will be to start planning how to collect all the information that goes into the Parish Profile. We’ll likely employ a mix of methods: informal conversations, group activities after church, shared dinners. However we go about this, I anticipate that it will be a rich and rewarding experience, one that offers an opportunity for all of us to grow together into deeper community and connection with one another. We will keep you all informed as we decide upon our approaches for generating the Parish Profile information. 
Please keep us in your prayers as we move forward together. And don’t hesitate to ask questions or share concerns with any of us. 

Heidi Stahl on behalf of the Search Committee: Brian Bint, Paul Gentile, Fredrica Harris, Randy Hensley, Ambrose Jearld, Rachel Rhude, Susan Schmidt
