The search for a new pastor has begun! Our Search Committee is Dan Camick, Chairman; David Harris; Sandy Potter; Diane Karoly; and Gary Rader. This update will be a regular feature during our pastoral search. The committee believes that regular communication is a positive in this process. A special poster has been hung in the Information area to mark off the various steps we will be taking toward finding our new pastor. Already, a few of them have been accomplished. There are many more to come. We do not expect this whole process to be quick. We expect our search will take at least a year.
We need your help! First and foremost, we need your daily prayers and encouragement. There may be times we will have to do some polling with you for such information as demographics, information about our church life, our congregational style, our worship life and the like. Your thoughts, questions and full cooperation are encouraged and needed. Please understand that some information we gather and look at, though, will have to stay confidential and be only known by the Search Committee. We will certainly protect any sensitive and personal data regarding congregational information as well as various pastoral profiles and resumes.
This process is an exciting one but will require hard work and lots of prayer from us all. God is watching over us and leading us. We believe He will be directing us to the right person to lead us into the future ministry for the community He has chosen for us to serve.
Keep those prayers flowing!
