Welcome to my web packet where I will share information about me, my background, and skills.  Hopefully it will give you a sense of who I am and what you might expect from my ministry. If in reading through my packet, you have questions or want more information, I’d be glad to add more.

Having experienced both interim and settled ministry, I see the relationship of the two phases of a congregation’s life as deeply connected.  The interim journey is one of discovery and change. My role as minister is to witness, question, and to listen deeply to your insights and awakenings. The time between now and your call to a new settled minister is rich with possibilities. My ministry is to facilitate all that is needed to bring you to a place of new beginnings, from feeling unsettled to eager. Along the way we will all have the chance to deepen our understanding of ourselves and each other.

Meanwhile, I hope to learn more about you through your packet and in conversations with you.  You have a challenging and greatly rewarding task ahead. I look forward to meeting all of you.

 

In faith,
Frieda Gillespie
