Candidacy Weekend Event
The Session of Shadyside Presbyterian Church has called a congregational meeting to occur immediately following worship on Sunday, June 27, for the purpose of voting to elect the candidate as Senior Pastor and Head of Staff. (Read more about worship on June 27, including our current protocols for counteracting COVID-19.)
The format of the meeting will be hybrid, meaning that we will have attendees on-site in the Sanctuary and online via Zoom videoconferencing. The meeting will follow the guidelines established by the Pittsburgh Presbytery for hybrid meetings, in order to ensure that all participants are able to engage completely in the proceedings and are able to vote privately.
Elder Mark Roth will moderate the meeting, and the Reverend Brian Wallace will serve as our online host for Zoom participants. Rev. Wallace is Associate Minister to Pittsburgh Presbytery; Elder Roth is a member of East Liberty Presbyterian Church and has worked closely with our Pastor Nominating Committee as our liaison from the Presbytery’s Commission on Ministry.
On-site attendees will vote by paper ballot. Online participants will use a private electronic voting system guided by the online host, who will provide a URL and a code to access the ballot. Those who are connected by a traditional/landline telephone (rather than a smart device) will vote privately by a voice vote, which will be heard only by the online host.
The link, telephone number, meeting ID, and passcode will not be shared publicly in the interest of keeping the meeting secure, but these details will be delivered directly to members by email. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the church office by phone or email before Friday, June 25, and we will do our best to assist you.
