The Pastoral Search Process

We received an outstanding 302 responses to the survey request, with many pages of excellent feedback for the committee. Thank you! It was a blessing to see the close alignment between the committee's preliminary discussions and the input you provided through the surveys. We are currently in the process of vetting a number of outstanding candidates that have been referred to us by our consultant. We are very encouraged with the progress.
We invite you to as a member of the committee if you have questions about the process. You can find their names below with a link to email the committee directly. 
We ask that you join with us in fasting and prayer throughout this season of discernment. We gather for prayer at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday morning in Parker Hall and hope you will join us.
