Truro parish update on departure of Tory Baucum as rector


A Statement to the Congregation – January 24, 2020

The Truro vestry wishes you grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

We write to clarify and update the previous statements concerning the status of the Rev. Tory Baucum.

Tory remains an employee of Truro and is working with the wardens to determine his final day as an employee. Pending Tory’s departure, Tim Mayfield is Acting Rector.

The third-party review of the staff’s disputes is proceeding. Tory has affirmed his intention to cooperate with the third party and his desire for reconciliation.

Later, the Vestry will inform the congregation of the results, as well as Tory and Elizabeth’s agreed-upon departure date.

Please hold Truro and our members, staff, clergy, and vestry in prayer as we continue to seek the Lord’s guidance for our future.
