Search Committee Update

Report from Your Search Committee

Firstly, we members of the Search Committee want to thank everyone for your prayers: let’s please keep that going!

We’ve begun to interview the candidates who have expressed an interest in serving St. Stephen’s in this position. Four candidates were interviewed and two have been selected by the committee in which to go further in the process.

Earlier in this process we gathered input of those who attended the coffee hour where we discussed the search process, the final version of our parish profile has been sent to the Diocese. One change in the process is that we have a different diocesan contact, Canon for the Ordained Vocations and Chaplain to the Mon Valley Mission Initiative, the Rev. Dr. Jay Geisler.

Rev. Canon Dr. Jay Geisler

We met with him on Sunday, August 26th. Some possible candidates have arisen and we will keep updating you as the process of identifying possible candidates continues. Thanks and Blessings.


Please pray for the Committee as they do their work.

Faithful God, we trust that you will bring us a leader, teacher, and shepherd for your flock at St. Stephen’s. Open our eyes to see and our ears to hear, so that your wisdom and guidance will be with us in every moment of this journey. Give us hope to know that you will provide the person that you want to help us carry out your will in this place. May we continue to show your love to each other and to share our faith with those who enter through our doors. Thank you for being with us and helping us to be obedient to your Spirit in every circumstance, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
