Welcome The Rev. John Hamilton The Rev. John Hamilton accepted the call to be the next Rector of St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church and began in March 2017.
The parish profile indicated that the top two traits desired in a rector are a good preacher with excellent pastoral care skills. John’s extensive educational, spiritual, and travel background, ability to relate to people easily, humor, speaking ability, and affinity to relish pastoral care opportunities drew the search committee to him. Through many interviews and engagements, the search committee first and the vestry when they were engaged in the call process became aware that John was the person the Spirit was leading them to call to be rector. Meanwhile, John was drawn to this caring, joyful community of folks and wanted to make his home in this place with this people.
