Search Committee 

A group charged to identify candidates for the position of bishop, rector, or other ministry in the life of the church. It may be the responsibility of the search committee to clarify the job description and identify the qualifications that are needed for the job. It is often the responsibility of the search committee to advertise the position or otherwise seek applications and nominations; to review applications, supporting documents, and references; to interview applicants; and to recommend one or more "finalists" to the body or group charged with final responsibility for the selection or appointment.
