Search Committee’s Progress Report
Chair David Cratty gave the following report at Trinity Cathedral’s May 7, 2017 Annual Meeting
Although not technically a part of 2016 activities, the Search Committee knows that there have been many questions about the search for a new dean. So, I want to take this opportunity to let you know where we are in the process.
There are roughly four stages to Trinity’s new dean search process:
- Congregational assessment
- The search
- The election/appointment of a new dean
- The welcome
We are just beginning the congregational assessment phase as we assess what it means to be a cathedral, not just a congregation.
The Committee wants to thank you [congregation] for the outstanding level of participation (191 responses) in our short survey last month. The congregation’s top three choices for being engaged were:
- Online surveys
- Small group meetings at Trinity
- Small group meetings in homes
The Committee currently is working on the logistics of implementing these choices. Also, note that the Committee has a web page accessible from Trinity’s home page. Look for the “New Dean Search” link.
Finally, we ask for your continued prayers for the Committee and the congregation.
