Rector Search



Parish Community Input

The search process for calling a Rector at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Danville, California, is in the final stages. The Search Committee has completed the assessment of all applicants, and the top three candidates have been submitted to the Vestry for their interviews. Below are the key activities of our process since last year:

  • The Search Committee was charged to bring three finalists to the Vestry by Pentecost. Fifteen town hall meetings were held to discern our parish priorities. The Search Committee met regularly with the Vestry to report progress, and used an online parish survey and social media to gather input from our youth.
  • On May 13, 2017, the Search Committee chose three finalists to recommend to the Vestry for consideration. The discernment included praying for all the candidates and listening to the Holy Spirit in reviewing the results of field visits with six semi-finalists.
  • In June 2017, the Vestry will interview each of the finalists and listen to God’s call of the shepherd that is best suited to lead the congregation forward.
  • Throughout the process, we engaged, collaborated and received very useful guidance and help from the Diocesan Office of Transition Ministry.
