First Church Boston Ministerial Search Timeline
End of December 2022: “Opening the Search” phase is complete, with the First Church Congregational Record posted with the UUA in early December for review by the pool of UU ministerial candidates.
January 2023: The Search Committee now enters next phase “Discernment and Selection,” where they begin to review interested candidates, each of whom posts an extensive Ministerial Record as a first step. By the end of January, three “pre-candidates” will be chosen.
February–March 2023: The Search Committee will arrange to interview these three “pre-candidates” in depth and to hear them preach.
April–May 2023: Final candidate will come to First Church Boston in late April or early May for a “candidating week” which culminates in the final congregational vote.
