Christ Church Greenwich has been assigned a Transition Consultant, The Rev’d Marissa Rohrbach, Rector of St. Andrews, in Meriden, CT. Marissa serves in many capacities throughout the Diocese and is currently the Chair of the Commission on Ministry for the Episcopal Church in Connecticut.
A new year has begun at Christ Church Greenwich. For the first time in nearly 25 years we are all part of an exciting opportunity to work towards finding our next Rector. There are eight Transition Team leaders who are shepherding this process. They were commissioned on Sunday, January 7 at the 9:15 service. Four Transition Teams have been created by the Vestry: the Discernment, Recruitment, Hospitality, and Prayer teams.
The Discernment Team will lead a series of parish conversations in January as they develop our Parish Profile, which will be used to attract applicants, and for the Recruitment Team to refer to during interviews. This team will then create a short list of top candidates. After prayerfully considering the Recruitment Team’s recommendations, the Vestry will make the call to their top choice. Throughout, the Prayer Team will be actively leading the parish through the process with prayer, and the Hospitality Team will be focusing on welcoming our candidates and new Rector.
