*** Latest update on the Process
The Episcopal Church of the Saviour, Hanford CA has partnered with St. James Lutheran (ELCA), Hanford CA to call a Priest/Pastor to serve both congregations. We are open to either an ELCA pastor or Episcopal priest. Four representatives from each congregation are serving as the search committee. The Rt. Rev. David Rice, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin and the Rev. Mark Holmerud, Bishop of the Sierra Pacific Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America have worked together and submitted candidates to the combined search committee. The search team has been guided through each step by the Rev. Canon Anna Carmichael, Phd. who is the Canon to the Ordinary of the Diocese of San Joaquin. The search committee has viewed videos of sermons by the prospective candidates and reviewed their applications, Online interviews were conducted on July 21st and in person meetings have been held. The final results will be released soon. Please keep the people and the process in your prayers.
