We are an inclusive, reconciling and greening congregation serving Whidbey Island. At St. Augustine’s in-the-Woods, our mission is to worship God, witnessing to Jesus Christ by serving the church, parish, community and world in which we live, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
This will be a long-term Interim assignment of two years prior to the search being initiated.
During this time of clergy vacancy, a priest-in-charge will be assigned to the church.
In this phase, the congregation will create a profile of their church and its needs and wants.
The Congregational OTM Profile can be found on the Office of Transition Ministry site, https://www.otmportfolio.org. After logging into this site and reading the church profile, if you wish to apply for the position, send a copy of your OTM profile along with a resume and cover letter to the Canon to the Ordinary.
In this phase, we will be receiving names of potential candidates.
NOTE: We do a thorough red flag check on all applicants.
In this phase of the process, the Canon to the Ordinary will submit names to the congregation from all of the applicants for consideration.
At this point in the process, names received by the congregation will be further vetted for potential interviewing.
During this phase, the search committee will interview the candidates selected from the previous phase.
The final phase is the selection and call of the final candidate.
