Rector Search

Incarnation is in the early stages of it’s search for a new Rector. Keep an eye on this page for updates as we move through the search process.

An announcement from the Chair of the Rector Search Committee:

Rector Search Committee: Committee Members Needed.

The Wardens of the Vestry and I will select members for this key committee by the end of February. As recommended by the Diocese, interested parishioners are asked to complete a short application.

Click here to download and fill out the Search Committee Application. Paper applications are available in the church narthex and Parish House.

The cut-off for applications is Sunday, February 16. Up to eight parishioners, including two Vestry members, will be selected.

The Committee’s work comes in two phases:

Late March-June: Assist the Chair in writing a parish profile, including strengths we are looking for in a new Rector.

September-November: Undertake an intensive period to review candidate submissions and then focus on some 12 finalists through phone/Skype meetings and possibly a few parish visits. The Canon for Transition will guide us, help with initial candidate screening and provide background checks for the dozen finalists. The position will be posted at the beginning of September.

The first phase will require at least one meeting a month with the bulk of work accomplished through emailed documents.

The second phase will involve a significant number of hours each week until the Committee agrees on one to three candidates to submit to the Vestry for decision and approval.
