Senior Pastor Transition

Frequently Asked Question

1. What's happening now?
With our interim Pastor Mike Frantz, the staff, and elders continue to provide stable leadership, our search team has invited a Senior Pastor candidate to preach on Sunday, Oct 9th.  There will also be an open house at the church on Saturday, Oct 8th from 9-11am to meet him.  On Sunday, after 2nd service, we will have lunch as a church and then have a special business meeting for a question and answer time as well as a vote.  

2. How are we going about finding a new Senior Pastor?
A Search Team has formed and approved by the congregation.  We are utilizing the Converge Placement Network  to find the right man for this position.  A video highlighting how this works can be found HERE.
The Converge Placement Network exists to help churches make this decision with wisdom, knowledge and Spirit-led confidence. Once the search team presents a lead candidate to the Board of Elders, if approved by the Elders, he will then be presented to the congregation for candidating and congregational approval.  
We expect to have names from the Converge Placement Network shortly and will begin the interview process.

4. How long will it take to find a new Senior Pastor?
Putting together a search team, assessing candidates, and going through the candidating and congregational approval process is no quick task.  The Converge Placement Network has found that this process averages 9-12 months.
