Pastoral Search Update:  We Have a Candidate!

The Pastoral Search Committee is pleased to announce that by unanimous vote, a candidate has been recommended for consideration as our new Senior Pastor – and the recommendation has been unanimously approved by the Church Council.  Because negotiations are continuing, it is too early to release the name of the candidate or details of his current ministry setting.  Information about the candidate will be distributed to the church family as soon as negotiations are complete, and a date for a “meet the candidate” weekend will be announced at least 15 days in advance. According to the church bylaws, the candidate must be approved by 2/3 vote of the church membership.  After 18 months, we are close to the end of the search process.  The church leadership is excited about the candidate, and look forward to sharing more details as soon as possible!
