Search Committee

The Vestry of All Souls is moving swiftly to start the search for a new Rector and we need a Search Committee to help us find one! An effective Search Committee is composed of 7-11 members who represent a broad cross section of the parish across areas of interest, age, gender, race/ethnicity, theology, demographics, etc. 

Members of the Search Committee were announced and charged by the Vestry on November 29, 2015. 

 

Search Committee Members
 

Lee Davis, chair

Lee has attended All Souls since 2010, when he came for pre-marital counseling with his now-wife, Jen.  He was confirmed in the Episcopal Church in 2013, having grown up Presbyterian.  Lee is in the choir and is serving on the stewardship committee for the first time this year.  He is an attorney at Vinson & Elkins LLP, focusing on capital markets and mergers & acquisitions transactions.  Jen and Lee have a baby girl, Amzi, who was born in February 2016. Lee has driven a Model T Ford, sung in Carnegie Hall, and had bricks thrown at him on the Great Wall of China.

 

Jan McLin Clayberg Will Coley Tony Domenico
JanMcLinClayberg William Coley Tony Domenico
Jan McLin Clayberg has been a member of All Souls and its choir since 1989. She says, “The choir has been a mainstay of All Souls and is in a very good place now with Ben Hutchens leading us. One of the happiest experiences of my life was serving on the search committee that brought John David Van Dooren to All Souls as our rector. At All Souls I’ve also done some knitting (thanks, Martha Domenico) and occasional gardening. Foyer dinners have made good friends of some at All Souls whom I had not known well before. Professionally, I’ve been a fulltime self-employed translator in the patent field since 1979, thanks partly to growing up in Germany and learning German and French there. I have three sons, four grandchildren and two step-grandchildren; all but one son live in the DC area. My husband Olaf Bexhoeft is German-born but has been an American since the 1950s.” Will’s first contact with All Souls occurred while jogging down Cathedral Avenue. His naval experience immediately influenced his thoughts: “It’s like a pocket church.” Sometime later, in October 1999, he crossed its threshold inquisitively after reading a newspaper article about Father John David. His warm greeting and the members’ welcome, as well as the church’s participatory liturgy let him know he had found a spiritual home. Since walking over All Souls' threshold, he has superintended Sunday school, taught adult forum, and served on several committees. Will currently attends the Wednesday night prayer meeting, acolytes, reads, prepares breakfast on Sundays, and serves as lay delegate to Washington Diocesan Annual Convention.  A retired Prince George’s County Public Schools English teacher, Will now teaches freshman composition at NOVA’s Loudoun Campus and instructs Berlitz language schools.  Tony has been a member of All Souls since 2002.  Among his accomplishments are:
he formed the Episcopal Men’s Fellowship and is still active in keeping it relevant; he serves as an Usher, Greeter and works on keeping All Souls Green. He takes part in Adult Forum and was a member of the Visioning Team planning our new addition. He was a member of the RenewalWorks team and its subsequent planning sessions. This has expanded his knowledge of what is important to the All Souls parish. He was a member of the vestry that called John Beddingfield.

Daniel E. Froggett has been a member of All Souls for three years. He is a member of the Communications Committee and regularly sings in the church choir. Daniel is originally from Kentucky, works as a contractor at the Foreign Service Institute, and is studying for a Doctor of Business Administration.  Embry Howell has been a member of All Souls since the late 1980s, when she joined along with her husband, Joe, and their teenage daughter, Jessica.  Their son, Andrew, was already in college. She has been a member of the All Souls Choir since that time. She has experienced three priests, three interim priests, several seminarians, and numerous non-stipendiary priests; and five choir directors (as well as several substitutes/ interims).  In addition to two grown children, Embry and Joe have four wonderful grandchildren.  She is a Senior Fellow at the Urban Institute Health Policy Center  (although now mostly retired).  She studies health care for disadvantaged people, primarily mothers and children, in the U.S. and around the world. Embry and Joe took a trip around the world without flying this year.   Kevin has been a part of the All Souls community since 1993 when he moved to DC from St. Louis by way of Philadelphia and Prague.  With fellow All Souls parishioners, Kevin volunteers weekly at Christ House.  He is also a member of the garden guild and a regular greeter, usher, reader, and bell ringer at the early service on Sundays.  Kevin initiated the annual All Souls Thanksgiving dinner in 1997 and has served on the Vestry.  In his professional life, Kevin consults to boards and executives on matters of governance, leadership, and succession planning.  
     
Dale Lewis Flo McAfee Hilary Wilcox Craig
Dale Lewis Flo McAfee Hilary Wilcox
Dale has been attending All Souls since 2003. He grew up as a Christian Scientist, so, in the "smells and bells" and stained glass of All Souls, he is (thankfully!) very far from where he started. He has served on Vestry and as Junior and Senior Warden of All Souls. During his tenure as Senior Warden, All Souls undertook a construction project which resolved handicap accessibility, thereby making the church more fully a place for all souls. He was also instrumental in disposing of amazing amounts of stuff that had accrued backstage, in the storeroom, and on shelves and in corners around the church. Dale is a retired submariner and currently works in the Department of Defense as a Program Manager. He met his partner Shane at All Souls in 2013. Flo has attended All Souls since relocating from New York to Washington, D.C. in early 1993. She and her husband, George Stewart, were married at the church in 1999. Reared as an “Army Brat,” Flo grew up Episcopalian with parents who actively served on the vestry, held senior warden positions, and belonged to search committees for new bishops and rectors in various churches throughout the country. Recently, Flo concluded her two-term tenure on the board of Episcopal Relief & Development. She currently serves on the Stewardship Committee at All Souls. Flo runs a strategic communications firm specializing in public relations and community engagement. Prior to starting her firm, she served at the White House during the Clinton Administration as the religious liaison. Fortunately, her replacement in that position was another Episcopalian.  

Hilary comes from a long line of Episcopalians on both sides of her family. She started attending All Souls in 2007 and was married in the church in 2012. She has enjoyed the many friendships she has made at the church through foyer dinner groups, charity projects like Habitat for Humanity, and coffee hour after the 11 am service. She moved to Washington in 1998 and enjoyed several years as a flight attendant for USAirways. She currently works in downtown Washington as a dental hygienist. She loves spending time with her husband Mike and 2 year old son, Cameron. Random facts:  She has been to every state in the US except Alaska (someday!), loves Kansas basketball,  and is owned by a cat named Sadie.
