The Ministerial Search Committee has moved into the precandidating phase of our search and has invited each of our four wonderful precandidates to Tucson to spend a weekend. All of us at UUCT are in search, and all of us in the congregation are bound by the rules of confidentiality of the search process. If you should happen to discover who any of our precandidates are, please remember to honor their anonymity, since the ministers deserve to tell their congregations about their search themselves in their own time and way.
For the last two weeks the search team has been very busy reading ministerial records, looking at candidate’s websites, listening to and reading sermons and taking part in Zoom conferences with the candidates. We are very excited! There are several ministers who have expressed an interest in our church who we think might be a great match. By the middle of next week we expect to have scheduled pre-candidating weekends with three or four of our top candidates. We’re feeling very optimistic!!!
