The Administrator Search committee is pleased to announce that we made an offer last week and the candidate accepted. Teresa W. will start work on July 13th, giving her a couple of weeks of overlap with Mindy before Mindy leaves us to move to Michigan.
Much work went into the search process, with Jonathan A, Clark D, Steve W, Yajeh N, Michael C, Bobbie B, Annmarie K, Larry W, Adam S, and Jackie W all putting in many hours to help us go through the ~100 applications we received. Thank you.
In the days, weeks, months, and years to come, we will all have the chance to get to know Teresa better, but for now here are her words of introduction:
“I feel blessed to be called to serve the community of Old First Reformed United Church of Christ. Although I am from another faith tradition, I share your values of welcome and hospitality towards all. Your commitment to charity and justice inspire me. I hope that my enthusiasm and administrative gifts strengthen your community and help it grow.”
If you are around church during the week, welcome Teresa. Once we have said our goodbye to Mindy, we will find a more formal way to introduce the community to Teresa.
Yours in Christ,
