713-528-6665   ---   1805 W ALABAMA, HOUSTON, TX 77098 --- SUNDAY WORSHIP AT 8:30 AM & 10:30 AM    --- info@ststephenshouston.org

It has been a busy week welcoming our new Interim Rector, Ray Wilson, our new Business Manager, Rochelle Butler, and our new nursery caregiver, Lisa Martinez to St. Stephen’s.  I want to extend my thanks to our staff and fellow Vestry members who helped in the interview process and are aiding Ray, Rochelle, and Lisa in their new roles. 

On June 3 the Vestry completed our initial training on the search process with the Rev. Kellaura Johnson, the Diocese’s Canon for Transition Ministry, and Rev. Christine Faulstich, the Diocese’s Canon to the Ordinary.  We received additional information about planning and managing expectations during the transition period and look forward to working on the next steps in the search for our new Rector.  

We will meet again next Tuesday, June 18, to start on the creation of our Parish Profile and creating a compensation package, both prerequisites to moving us into the active search part of our timeline.  

In the coming weeks we will also be setting up the process by which our Search Committee will be formed.  We thank you for your continued prayers and support throughout this spirit-led journey.

Yours in Christ,

Dave Morrell

Senior Warden
