New Lead Docent
Grace Cromwell has been contracted as an independent contractor to serve as Memorial’s new Lead Docent. Grace brings a wealth of experience to the job, as well as a knowledge of the church and its mission. In the past this position as focused primarily upon scheduling individual docents to work during the week. Under Jay Smith’s leadership the program began to expand and the intent is to continue that expansion not only to attract more visitors to the sanctuary, but to deepen their experience of the church when they visit. The Lead Docent will also coordinate “Behind the Scene Tours;” market the sale of appropriate items by the docents and an online “store” related to the website; and extend this ministry of hospitality by developing relationships with and exploring opportunities for promotion of the church’s historic significance through other community organizations.
