Senior Pastor Search Update

As the Leadership Board and Search Committee continue the process of finding a new senior pastor, they welcome your input. There are cards available at Guest Services for you to do use to communicate your thoughts and ideas as we prayerfully continue the search. The Search Committee has compiled a pastoral profile based on the feedback that has already been received. The Leadership Board has approved that profile and presented it to our district office, so that the district can begin leading us to suit suitable candidates. We are grateful for your participation.
