The day we knew was coming has arrived. We now have a timeline for David Bone's retirement from The Fellowship.
As of May 3, David will be employed by Southern Hills Medical Center in Nashville, TN, coordinating the spiritual life of the patients and staff, as well as connecting to the multi-faith and multi-national community that surrounds the hospital. He'll be with us as Executive Director until the end of April.
Beginning in May, David will retain 8 hours per week of Fellowship work processing incoming and outgoing financial transactions as well as membership renewals. This will enable the day-to-day functions of the national office to continue uninterrupted.
Under the recommendation of the Admin Working Group of The Fellowship's board, we plan to hire a part-time interim Executive Director this summer and work toward hiring our next Executive Director by this time next year.
We're excited about plans that are already underway to honor David this summer, and we'll be in touch again soon with additional details about those plans.
We're not where we once were and we're not yet where we want to be, but we are certain that the Holy Spirit is leading the way, both for David and for The Fellowship.
Peace and every good,
Rev. Leigh Anne Taylor,
