Thank you all for your continued prayer as we are working through the Senior Pastor Leadership Transition process. We know that the Holy Spirit is at work.
Here is a quick update of where we are currently in the process.
- Thanks to our pastoral staff, our personnel and finance committee members, and our deacons, we received over 100 names in consideration for our Senior Pastor Search Team. Our Personnel Committee is hard at work prayerfully evaluating and sorting through all of these individuals.
- The evaluation process will narrow down the selections to 14-21 individuals, who will be presented to the church for consideration a secret ballot.
- We will vote to elect the Senior Pastor Search Team on March 30 & 31.
- Please know that your continued prayer is vital throughout the entirety of this process, but currently we are praying specifically for God to clearly define the individuals that will serve on our search team.
