A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who responded to the congregational survey! The Mission Site Profile Has Been Submitted!
The submission of the Mission Site Profile is just the FIRST step in the call process. The next step is the responsibility of the call committee. The committee will be receiving the names of candidates from the Synod office in the next few weeks or months. The committee will be vetting and interviewing these candidates and discerning which candidate to recommend to the council to interview and discern whether the candidate will be presented to the congregation as the candidate for our next pastor.
At any point in this process, the candidate may decide to remove themselves from being considered further just as the call committee, the council, or the congregation may reject the candidate. This process will take several weeks or months to complete. For more detailed information, please refer to the newsletter sent out in May explaining the process or contact Julie Slavens at email@example.com or Eric Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please continue to pray for God to prepare our next pastor and to prepare us for our next pastor.
