Rev. Charles DENNIS Alger
Dear Members and Friends of Arlington Community Church,
The Interim Minister Search Committee placed a brief note in last week's Parishscope and an announcement was made in church last Sunday. We would like to take this opportunity to share more about Rev. Charles DENNIS Alger. (He prefers being called Dennis.)
Dennis has had a very interesting and diverse career. He has served in interim capacities and spent 23 years as a Hospice Chaplain. He has spent most of his time in Oregon and Hawaii. Dennis has very strong convictions about churches being involved with justice ministries.
He and his wife have two adult daughters and he resides in Southern California near Carlsbad. They have two dogs who make sure he has daily exercise. His post graduate degrees are from the University of Hawaii (Political Science) and San Francisco Theological Seminary.
Dennis has a great sense of humor, which we experienced during his interviews. His references had great praise for him, both written and telephone interviews.
When reading his profile, we knew we had been blessed with a great match.
Dennis will begin Advent with us on December 2nd. We will have a special Coffee Hour for him after church and on Thursday, December 6th, our First Thursday will be a Potluck Dinner with him. (Please put these dates on your calendar.)
He will reside in a studio apartment near the church and we may call on the Congregation to help furnish it.
We know you have loads of questions, please do not hesitate to contact anyone on the Interim Search Committee.
