    2. Discussion of a process regarding second interviews, Plan B, information to be shared with the congregation along the way, etc.
    3. Confidentiality, mutual respect, integrity, speaking the truth in love
  7. Familiarity with pastoral roles and responsibilities (or commitment to put in the time and effort to learn about these)
  8. Able to make a 5-7+ month commitment to the work of the Committee
  9. Able to commit to a minimum of two meetings monthly (note the first meeting is January 26th)
