Update on Rector Search Committee

We want to thank you all for thoughtfully submitting names for the Search Committee. We received dozens of nominations. We are thrilled to now share the next step in the process, which is to announce that, with the support of the Vestry, Judith Stockdale and Geoff Euston will serve as Co-Chairs of the Search Committee for St. Chrysostom’s next rector. Next Judith and Geoff, in consultation with the Wardens, will be reviewing the list of nominations to select a full and representative Search Committee. We expect this work to take the next several weeks, with the proposed Search Committee slate presented to Vestry for approval at the September 12 meeting.

Our co-chairs each have a long history of leadership at St. Chrysostom’s. A member of our church for over 35 years, Judith is a past Vestry member, and she currently serves on the Stewardship Committee and Flower Guild as well as supporting our Hospitality programs. Judith and her husband, Jonathan Boyer, have two children and two grandchildren.

Geoff has been an integral part of our recent capital campaign, acting as a liaison with both the architects and contractors. He has also served on Vestry and currently serves on the Day School Advisory Committee. He and his wife, Angie, have a young daughter who attended the Day School and is part of our children’s choir.

Please join us in thanking Geoff and Judith for accepting the call to lead the Search Committee and keeping them in our prayers. 
In gratitude,
John Bankhurst & Ginny Van Alyea
