April 1, 2019 -- Our search for a new Rector is underway! We have commissioned a Rector Search Committee, which is meeting weekly. Members of the parish came together for our Day of Discovery on Saturday, March 16th to explore who we are as St. Francis, where we wish to go in the future, and what we're looking for in a new Rector. The Search Committee is now translating the results of that effort into a Parish Profile, an Office of Transition Ministry Portfolio for St. Francis, and a Rector Job Description. May 29, 2019 -- After working the last 9 weeks on completing a 12-question form for the Office of Transitional Ministry Profile, the Search Committee has turned the form in to the Vestry for final approval, who will then send it on to the Diocese. Meanwhile, the Search Committee has also spent the past several weeks working on the last item to be completed, the Parish Profile. That document is now almost ready for Vestry approval, and once approved it will also be sent to the Diocese. At that point the Diocese will begin to take applications for the position. The completed Parish Profile will be posted on this page once it has been approved and forwarded, and an announcement will be posted when the Diocese is ready to begin accepting candidates for the Rector position.

St. Francis Rector Search Prayer Almighty and everliving God, the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, send forth your Holy Spirit to guide the Search Committee, Vestry and parish family of St. Francis in the Valley, to be of one heart and mind in our search for a rector who will be your faithful servant and who will minister to your flock.
By your light O Lord, draw us to those with vision and passion for St. Francis' future. Guide them as they discern your call. Raise up for us a faithful pastor, a dynamic preacher of your Gospel, to shepherd us as your flock, strengthen our ministries, and work with us in building up your kingdom.
May we strive to be your heart and hands in our parish and be a light of love to all. Amen.
