St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is in the midst of a rector transition. The Rev. Dr. Clarke French is serving as our interim rector to shepherd us through this process. We have formed two Search Committees: one to write our Parish Profile and the other to conduct the search for our next rector. 

The Parish Profile Committee will open a conversation about the ministry of St. Peter’s, engaging us all in town halls, surveys, and discussion groups. They will help us to describe who we are, who we want to be, and what sort of parish God is calling us to be. The Profile that they write will paint a true and lively picture of the challenges and vision of our parish. This Profile will touch the heart of the priest who will be our next Rector. 
The Rector Search Committee will open the doors of St. Peter’s to clergy candidates whose experience, calling, and leadership style match up with what God is calling us to be. The committee will screen resumes, interview candidates, visit candidates to see them in ministry, and ultimately recommend one or more candidates to the Vestry.
