The accidental deployment experiment is wrapping up.  We are no longer receiving names for any of our vacant positions, and I am going on vacation for a couple of weeks.

We filled the education director position in about five weeks, beginning with fifty plus applications.

We are down to finalists for the assistant vicar position, having received around twenty-five inquiries or recommendations.  Our bishop will be interviewing finalists in early September, about twelve months after initial conversations began.  I will blog more about the process when we have made a call.

Both search committees were pleased with the quality of candidates presented.
