Christopher Chornyak is stepping down. “It was a hard decision to make,” Chornyak said. “I really came to the conclusion that we have traveled as far on the path as we were going to travel together.” Chornyak’s path in Ellsworth began 18 years ago, after a 12-year stint in Washington County, where he served churches in Calais, Woodland and Eastport. He arrived in Maine after a couple of years in both western Massachusetts and Wisconsin, where he grew up and went to graduate school, respectively.
