Calvary Transitions

8th&H

Intentional Interim
At the October 19 Calvary Conversation the Board announced the selection of Rev. Dr. Joseph Glaze, as the person the Board unanimously recommends to be Calvary’s intentional interim pastor. Dr. Glaze has had interim pastorates at Washington Plaza Baptist Church and The United Church of Christ in Annapolis, plus other fulltime pastorates. He also has extensive teaching, writing and mentoring experience. Dr. Glaze’s resume is available from the church office; a copy can be sent via email or mail. You can also listen to his sermons on the Washington Plaza website at www.washingtonplazachurch.com.

There will be a Special Business Meeting to vote on his selection Sunday, November 16, following worship.

Prior to voting we will have the following Sunday opportunities to discuss this selection and meet Dr. Glaze:
November 2, 2:00 p.m., in the Chapel, Meet Dr. Glaze and his wife
November 9, 12:30 p.m., in the Chapel, Calvary Conversation about the Intentional Interim Pastorate

If you have questions or would like more information contact Eva Powell, Transitions@calvarydc.org. Please continue to uphold the Board in your prayers as they work.

Managing Changes
Please mark your calendars: the Board will host a Calvary Conversation after coffee hour on the second Sunday of every month, in October we will review our process and announce the name of the candidate that will be recommended to the Congregation. On November 9 the Calvary Conversation will be an opportunity for the Congregation to share their thoughts and questions about the candidate. These Conversations are your opportunity to come hear the latest updates, contribute your ideas, talk with fellow Calvary-ites and help our congregation navigate the next several months as we seek an intentional interim pastor and, ultimately, a new senior pastor.

Pastoral Residents
On August 10, we welcomed our first 2 pastoral residents, Elijah Zehyoue and Erica Lea. They will be our associate pastors, and have much to offer us in this time of transition. Get to know a little about them by reading their bios.
