Ministry Team and Board of Directors

Ministry Team

The search for the 4th director of the Episcopal House of Prayer is entering its 3rd phase!

  • First we listened to our community and friends and spent some time discerning our own strengths and how we could vision ourselves moving into an expanding mission.
  • Next we composed a new search profile, revised the job description and activated the search.

We threw the net wide, and ?I am pleased to tell you that we have 14 applicants for the EHOP director position!! The search committee will be meeting in July to whittle the list down to those we truly think might be a good match with EHOP and to schedule first interviews.

The search committee is grateful for our EHOP friends and supporters who have spread the word, made suggestions, encouraged candidates to apply, and have kept us in their prayers.

In gratitude,

Joanie Delamater

First Vice-Chair
