Transition Team Launches Listening Campaign

Dear Mill Creek Members and Friends,

Recently, the Board formed a Transition Team to plan how to manage Mill Creek Church during the interim period as the congregation begins its search for the next long-term minister. The Transition Team’s planning process will also provide guidance to the Search Committee in terms of the characteristics we desire in a new minister.

As Steve Selph shared at the Mid-Year Congregational Meeting on January 29, the Board has accepted a pro bono offer from Mill Creek church member and national church consultant, Tracy Morgan, to guide the congregation through this planning process. She uses an approach that has been successful with hundreds of organizations locally and globally that seek high quality, realistic plans with congregational buy-in for a minimum amount of planning effort.

The first step is a congregation-wide Listening Campaign. This is conducted through a 3-step “Virtual Dialogue” where you will be invited to share your thoughts, insights, and opinions in an anonymous online format. The first of the three sequential steps will begin on Monday, February 27. In order to participate in the Listening Campaign, you must opt-in by completing a sign-up form – use the link below.

This Sunday, February 19, Tracy will share the details of the process with the Transition Team and answer questions. Anyone in the congregation is invited to listen along with the Transition Team immediately after church in the conference room next to the library.

Tracy will also give a presentation to the congregation immediately after worship on Sunday, February 26 to explain more fully how you can participate in the listening campaign.

While the Board has empowered the Transition Team and the Search Committee to do the hard work of planning and recruiting, the effectiveness of their work will benefit from maximum participation.
