Description

Liturgical style and practice

St. Peter's is a broad church, with a very well done and practical service. They are excited about the new coral director and the return of the both volunteer and pay choir. There is a new emphasis on incorporating children into the service.

Strengths

Saint Peter’s is a vibrant congregation out side of Cleveland Ohio. They have just finished a building project, which followed a successful Capital Campaign.  The Rector meant to leave at the end of the building project, but stayed 6 extra months  to see them through the pandemic changes. It is a strong congregation, with capable lay leaders, who are looking for a partner in ministry in this odd time.

Challenges

The congregation faces all the same challenges that every congregation does after a longtime dynamic leader retires. The rector lead them through a capital campaign and a beautiful building program. Visioning what the next step is together with St. Peter's will be a large part of the next rector's first few years.

Comments

The combination of the Covid and the rector and key staff departures has caused St. Peter's to move slowly through the transition process. Taking their time as they go has let them try new things as they have slowly be able to return to church.
