What we will be doing about Rev. Michael’s position

I wanted to communicate with all of you what will transpire now that Rev. Michael Ingersoll has left our Hallowed Halls.

First, we will miss him like heck.

Second, we will get through the coming month as best we can without him. Luckily most of the wheels are in motion for communication functions and any marketing required for Easter. I have a weeklong retreat in March and it will take a while to create a comprehensive job description so we can post the job position. Therefore, I doubt interviewing can begin before April.

Third, production responsibilities are now being handled by Beverly Daugherty. That includes lighting and sound.

Fourth, Rev. Debora Gay is taking over the Stewardship functions Michael was involved in.

Fifth, the part of Michael’s job we will be hiring for involves communication, both internal and external, marketing and PR, with a heavy emphasis on Social Networking.

Sixth, Rev. Barbara Novak will be doing announcements for a while, until Rev. Debora feels comfortable joining her with that duty. I am also looking into recruiting some volunteer “MCs” to help out with this task.

Thank you all for your flexibility during this time of change.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
