Senior Pastor Search Update
The end of July is approaching quickly and while the search committee is actively working through the search process, the endeavor will not be completed in a month or two. As such, the church will be engaging a short-term Interim Senior Pastor in the near future. The goal is to have this role filled by mid-September. This will leave a 6-8 week gap between Pastor Brent’s departure and having an Senior Interim Pastor in place. As such, the worship committee is working to fill the pulpit with a variety of guest preachers during this time (you will see some friendly faces at the lectern).
The church is also putting together a plan to ensure the continuity of pastoral care and staff support for the remainder of the summer. The church is not looking for Pastor Benjamin to take on any additional duties during this period or beyond. His focus will continue to be on Christian Education, service support, and assisting with pastoral care.
There is a great deal of activity on-going to ensure continuity of services and operations both in the short-term and in the longer term until our next Senior Pastor is in place. Please connect with the Moderator, Chelsea Haefele, or Vice-moderator, David Hood, if you have any questions.
