On September 12th the Vestry approved St. Chrysostom’s Church’s Search Committee slate presented by the Committee Co-Chairs Geoff Euston & Judith Stockdale. The Vestry is grateful to all those who nominated fellow members of our parish, as we received over 40 names, showing that there has been great interest in participating in the search process for our next Rector and supporting the Search Committee. Together the Wardens and Search Committee Chairs engaged in a comprehensive process to ensure that the Search Committee would fully and positively represent our St. Chrysostom’s parish, community, and ministries.

The Search Committee is working diligently on drafting both our Parish Profile and candidate facing documents. More specifically, the Parish Profile will be a public document which thoroughly describes our community, church facilities and ministries.  The OTM document is the official job posting and will only be seen by eligible candidates who are seeking a Rector position.  Once approved, the Chicago Diocese and Episcopal Church will post the documents, which will be available across the Episcopal community.  Once this occurs, the St. Chrysostom’s Rector position will officially be open for applications.

We anticipate our posting will “go live” sometime in March and remain open for 60 days, after which the search committee will begin the process of reviewing the submissions and the discernment process.  

As always, you’re welcome to reach out to any committee member and access more information on the Church website:
