As you know, we have two search committees meeting regularly to discern who God is calling to walk with us by loving our children and students, work with the many ministers who volunteer their time and pass on our faith to the next generation. Both search committees desire your feedback and want to keep everyone informed as we move forward. Neil Stratton is leading the Youth Pastor search and Eric Cleckler is leading the Children’s Pastor search.
The Children Pastor’s search committee met last night and has begun the work of discernment. Currently they are finalizing both the wording of the job description to be posted on various websites and will soon begin receiving names of candidates. If you have anyone that you know who you believe would be a great candidate please let either of these committees know. You can do that by contacting Neil or Eric directly, or let me know.
The Children’s Pastor search committee hopes to begin conducting interviews in a few weeks and hopefully issue a call to an outstanding candidate by the end of October. This is ambitious and a lot of prayer is needed to help us sort through all those who we discern are potential candidates. Our Children’s ministry is in great hands during this transition period and we look forward to finding the right person to build on the good work that is being done every Sunday. Thank you for your feedback, support and prayers. I will keep you informed as we move forward. The Children’s Pastor search committee would like to meet you at the steps this Sunday morning following the 10:30 service to receive any feedback you may have. See you there!!
