Utilizing the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) ministerial search system, we had two candidates who expressed an interest in serving as our minister. After reading one candidate’s materials, interviewing her and checking her references, we made an offer, but unfortunately, she now has taken a position in an urban setting. While we were going through this process, the other candidate also took a position.
The Transition Team has since met and is exploring other resources. We have placed an ad in the UU World. We are also in the process of contacting the eight theological schools which serve UU ministerial candidates to ask them to alert their upcoming graduates to our search for a minister. As well, we are exploring advertising on CareerBuilder.com and/or LinkedIn.com.
We will keep you apprised as we continue our work.
