Strengths

St. Ann is a small but vibrant and progressive church community located in Woodstock, 60 miles NW of downtown Chicago. They experienced stability and growth with their last rector and have had a good interim experience.

St. Ann's has strong lay leadership who are eager to work collaboratively with the next rector.

This is a highly relational congregation.

 

 

Challenges

While St. Ann's has many events that connect them socially to the wider community, they seek a rector who can help them deepen relationships with the Woodstock community.

St. Ann's wants to deepen education opportunities to their small but growing population of young children.

Several long-term parishioners have moved away in recent years; long-term financial stability is a concern.

 

Comments
