New Rector Search

The process for calling a new Rector at Trinity is one of mutual discernment that is engaged by the parish members, Vestry, VisionTrinity, the search committee, and the candidates in partnership with the Bishop and their staff. This important time must be carried out prayerfully and with great care. It requires a commitment of time, energy and resources. We understand that there is energy and excitement for the search to find a new priest for the parish. We trust that God is at work in the process and invite you to join in.  

A Prayer for Our Rector Search

God, who has blessed and sustained us through the years, we ask that you continue to lead, stretch, and direct us in our search for a new rector. Raise for us, we pray, a priest and pastor who will boldly proclaim your Gospel, faithfully administer your sacraments, and serve your people with love and compassion, so that we may continue to grow in the likeness of Christ to be a beacon of love and hope in our community and the world. Amen.


Good news! The Parish Profile has been completed by VisionTrinity, approved by the Vestry, and approved by the Diocese of Southern Ohio. The Parish Profile is an instrument that provides important information about Trinity's mission, services, ministries, financial information, facilities, and history—in addition to details about the hope for our future direction and next Rector. The Parish Profile will be made available to clergy who may be interested in a call to serve as Trinity's next Rector. 

You may read the Parish Profile here. Parish_Profile_-_Trinity_Episcopal_Church_on_Capitol_Squre_-_FINAL_-_Vestry_Approved_02.15.2023.pdf  Paper copies will also be available this Sunday at the entrance to the church.

I would like to thank members of the parish who completed the Parish Survey and attended the Parish Listening Sessions last fall. Your thoughtful input provided invaluable information that helped form the Parish Profile. I would also like to thank members of VisionTrinity for their tireless work on this year-long process: Bill Bronson, Dale Deubler, Harriet Donaldson, Mary Gahbauer, Michael Gilligan, and Brad Sturm. 

—Alex Wenning, Convener of VisionTrinity


The Canon for Transitions and Congregation Vitality in the Diocese of Southern Ohio, the Rev. Canon Michael Spencer is in regular communication with both the Vestry and VisionTrinity, and will meet with the vestry at the end of March to discuss next steps.
