After a bad experience with a rector, the parish has learned to value the diocese and to see they're part of something broader in the Episcopal Church. They've had a good, productive interim.
They understand their mission, core values, and challenges.
The beautiful church and the spacious rectory are merely the icing on the cake for this community of the faithful who aspire to be a church where faith transforms, worship engages, ministry empowers, and tradition grounds.
Help the congregation to begin to reflect the diversity of the broader community; speaking Spanish would be helpful. Ongoing congregational development needed--especially raising up and fostering lay leadership. Learning to engage the world as it currently exists, not as it once was. Stewardship needs to move away from investments for operating costs. Formation program is currently diminished and re-engagement is needed.
They describe these desired-but-not-essential skills and experiences:
Bilingual - Spanish
Engagement with the diocese and Harford region
Understand/use demographic data.
Transparency and openness
Sense of humor
