The next pastor(s) called to Katonah should ideally be grounded in faith, bringing a mature spirituality to the interpretation of scripture. A congregation of learners, we appreciate a good sermon and service. A pastor who relates personal and religious experience to connect with KPC, will be an asset. The new pastor will be looking for ways to engage people and their needs, showing a strong compassion for any who suffer or hurt, reaching out proactively and continuously to all. With many intergenerational families, KPC is looking for a leader who can connect with younger members, making church relevant in their lives. At the same time, an understanding of the needs of aging congregations necessitates continual, sensitive pastoral care. The pastor should bring strategy and imagination to seek new opportunities for outreach within our church and communities, abetted by an ability to make decisions and then clearly communicate them. Calm in the face of turbulence or discord, the pastor would address conflict in the most sensitive and persuasive way. A good listener, the pastor would work well with members of staff and congregation, using technology to facilitate solutions.
