Board encouraged by the quality of candidates

Calvary’s Presidential Search Committee has vetted several candidates and progressed to a phase of interviews. Vic Borden, member of Calvary’s Board of Trustees and Chairman of the Presidential Search Committee, outlined what they are looking for in a president: “The prospective candidate must agree with the CU doctrinal statement unreservedly.  Additionally, the Committee and Board will be considering the candidates’ spiritual life, integrity, education, experience, character, people skills, etc.”

Borden said the search committee is working from a narrowed group of applicants, and “there are interviews pending with three candidates, with more to follow.” He added, while the quantity of candidates is small, “there is profound quality in the group.”

Once the interviews are completed, the Committee will make recommendations to the Board, and the Board will make the decision of offering the position. Borden said, despite the long process of vetting candidates through their personal and professional references, the Committee is progressing quickly. He pointed out that, “in order to do as thorough a job as possible, time is needed.” Overall, he and Chairman of the Board Tom Zobrist agreed, “It’s going very well, especially in light of the high quality of candidates the Committee has received.”
