Comments

The future leader of St. Andrew’s must be engaging and compassionate with a personal investment in our church's vibrant family. This leader should prioritize open and clear communication and be as willing to listen as to speak. Pastoral care has always been a major focus for our parish, and strong skills in reaching and supporting every member of the church are vital. St. Andrew’s is a church with a never-ending fountain of volunteers, and a leader should encourage the congregation to appreciate and recognize every volunteer and their gifts. Any leader should also be invested in their own self-care, knowing that they cannot pour from an empty cup; an ability to delegate and take time to replenish themselves is of utmost importance. Finally, they must be a lifelong student, willing to learn and grow through studying Scripture, current events, trends in youth and adult education, and any other subjects that will enrich both their own life and the lives of their parishioners.
