Our Search Committee has recently put out a Parish wide Rector Search Survey. The first part of the search process is to generate a Parish Profile for Good Shepherd. This profile serves as our foundation for the process. It describes who we are, our values, our goals, and our hopes for the future that we are building. This profile, along with statistical information, will be used to publish who we are and announce our open position formally. It is vital that our profile reflect our entire parish family. This survey is one of many ways each person can personally be part of our search process.
The information gathered from the survey will be used to build our profile and guide the Search Committee and the Vestry as they consider candidates to be the next Rector of CGS. The responses will also help the Vestry, our Priest-in-charge and the next Rector to set priorities for the future of Good Shepherd.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why is the survey so important?
The more input we have from each and every member of CGS the better we will be able to narrow our search requirements to meet the needs of the parish. The new rector will have many skills, but we want to tailor the job description to the needs of the congregation and make the best fit we can. The more responses we are able to get from a cross section of the congregation the better our parish profile will look.
Are we on track with putting out a call, and when will we get more information?
The Search Committee is current with the timeline, and is compiling survey results and working on the parish profile now. There will be another outreach forum on May 20, and the Search Committee will be prepared to discuss the survey results and respond to any other questions. Survey results will also be available in the next newsletter.
