Dear Friends at Christ the King,
I am writing to share with you the news that Christine Fifield has resigned from her position as Communications Coordinator at Christ the King, effective May 1, 2017. The announcement of her resignation was communicated to CtK staff and council earlier today. Christine will be moving to Chicago, where new adventures await her.
Christine has served as Communications Coordinator at CtK since September 2014. Drawing on her experience facilitating communications for the Saint Paul Area Synod, she has been able to further develop and advance CtK’s communication strategy and expand our social media presence, while maintaining and improving CtK’s website, as well as such print media as the Herald, which she more fully reconstructed as a storytelling platform rather than simply a compilation of announcements. In the course of the last three years, Christine has collaborated in different ways with both staff and volunteers, expanded her photography and videography abilities, and made use of her Spanish language skills with the emerging Cristo Rey community. She has definitely left her mark on our community, particularly through such creative projects as the Clothed with Compassion T-Shirt campaign as well as the Stories of Compassion in Action video series.
In the letter announcing her resignation, Christine writes, “CtK has been an incredibly supportive and nurturing community to me as both a person and a professional, and for that I am thankful. I wish the CtK community, staff, and members continued growth, wisdom, and opportunity in the years to come. I look forward to following what comes next for this engaged and passionate community of faith.”
I have begun working with others on staff and personnel committee to update our position description, which we will post as soon as possible in appropriate media outlets. Ideally, we would like to have someone in place sometime during the summer.
As Christine moves on to new ventures to which God is calling her, she goes with the assurance of our continued prayers. I speak for many here at Christ the King in saying that we are truly grateful for all that Christine has done among us and convinced that she will be both an asset and a blessing to those among whom she will be working in the future.
Together in God’s mission,
Pastor Peter Hanson
