Jan. 21, 2019. The Assistant Minister Search Team – made up of Susan Bennett, Mary Lareau, Mark Magee, Rev. David A. Miller, Anthony Salvi, Kathy Smerke Hochberg, Milver Valenzuela and chair Shannon Williams – has met regularly since early November. In consultation with the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and other congregations, the committee developed a position description and posted it on the UUA jobs board on Jan. 1. We have received 10 applications for the position and have begun scheduling first-round interviews with the selected candidates. While we cannot relate details about the individuals on the list, we can say that we are excited about the qualities and experiences they could bring to our congregation. We look forward to meeting with them. If a new assistant minister is hired during this process, the start date will be August 2019. We will continue to provide updates to the congregation throughout this process. If you have questions, please contact Shannon Williams.
