FROM THE SENIOR MINISTER SEARCH COMMITTEE
After a year-long search, the Senior Minister Search Committee (SMSC) is pleased to present our chosen candidate, Rev. Mariela Pérez-Simons. For reasons you will see in the materials we’ve linked below, Mariela rose to the top of our list and was unanimously endorsed by the committee.
Now, according to the Fountain Street Church bylaws, members of the congregation must vote to accept or reject our proposed candidate at a special meeting called by the Governing Board. Members in good standing of the church will receive written instructions and a ballot from the Governing Board prior to a May 31 meeting.
Over the next several weeks, the SMSC will be available to answer your questions about Rev. Mariela and the search process at our email address: FSCsmsc@gmail.com
Members of the SMSC would also be happy to join any Zoom-like meetings your FSC group may be holding during the current social-distancing time. To book a Search Committee member to visit your virtual meeting, email FSCsmsc@gmail.com
We are very excited to present Rev. Pérez-Simons for your consideration. We hope you will take time to get to know her through the SMSC’s letter to the congregation and Mariela’s self-introduction, linked below. You may also follow the link to Mariela’s personal web page which includes a special recorded message to Fountain Street Church and samples of her preaching.
