Pastor Transition

A New Chapter Begins

Special Called Church Conference

During a special church conference on Sunday, September 11, 2022, in the Central and North Venues, the church voted to approve a motion from the Deacon Nominating Team to accept the entire Senior Pastor Search Committee as recommended.

Senior Pastor Search Committee

The Senior Pastor Search Committee is comprised of nine church members, including the committee chair. A team of deacons vetted these nominees in order to assemble a committee that is representative of the church body.

The Senior Pastor Search Committee is empowered to seek and recommend to the church a prospective senior pastor. The prospective senior pastor will be presented to the church and the church will vote regarding a call as our senior pastor.

The senior pastor will shape the direction and health of our church for years to come. The entire process needs to be bathed in prayer as the church seeks God’s direction in calling the right person.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” James 1:5 ESV

Frequently Asked Questions

The Senior Pastor Search Committee will develop a process for applications and nominations of prospective senior pastors. Church members will be informed of this process once it is developed and will have an opportunity to make nominations and encourage potential applicants for consideration.
We are trusting God to raise up the shepherd our church needs according to His timing. If the position is not filled by the time Bro. Steve retires, our deacon leaders and church staff will ensure the continuation of our ministries, Sunday morning preaching and teaching, and pastoral care for the church.
