With the arrival of Interim Pastor Rev. Dr. Charles Svendsen in July, our search for a new Pastor/Head of Staff began in earnest. Since then, your Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) has been meeting weekly to formulate the Ministry Information Form (MIF), the “want ad,’ if you will, for the position, which is found on the PC(USA) website. The MIF was uploaded to the site in January, and the PNC now is tasked with reviewing the Pastor Information Forms (PIFs) (Pastor’s resume) that are being submitted. The PNC will be providing updates to the congregation on a monthly basis via a Moment for Ministry during Sunday worship as well as articles in the following week’s enews and Life of the Church. These updates also will be added to this page of our website.
This is an exciting time in the life of our church. Your prayers for both our PNC and the person God is preparing for this position are vital.
Please see the 2019 Mission Study here.
2/9/2020 ― We opened this week’s meeting with Philippians 4:6-“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” We have received over 75 Pastor information forms (PIFs). We are prayerfully taking a closer look at the ones that made it through our initial screening process by listening to sermons, checking out websites and reading a lot of statements of faith! Our discerning process has begun so we ask that you continue to keep us in your prayers. God is faithful. He who began this good work will carry it on to completion. -Submitted by Cheryl Long
