Rector Search – Accepting candidate applications


Friends of St. Stephen’s, if you haven’t had a chance to visit our new website lately please take a chance now. A page dedicated to our Rector search is up and running.

The Office of Transition Ministry will be accepting applications through February 16. Lynn Carter-Edmands has posted the vacancy through traditional channels, and we also encourage you to send this application to rectors you know or have met in your travels. We would love to have a broad range of candidates who are open to sharing and growing our ministries with our congregation. For a point of reference, 15 parishes in our Diocese are in the midst of calling a Rector.


Once the application period closes, a tentative schedule is:
March: Skype interviews with long list candidates
April: Potential visits to short list candidates’ churches

May: Finalist interviews in Columbus
July: New Rector begins at St. Stephen’s


The Search Committee will gladly accept your prayers for clarity and stamina as we head into the next phase of the process.


Mikalene Guiser, Search Committee Co-Chair
