This has been an exciting week in our associate pastor searches. The Ministry Information Forms (the descriptions of our church, ministries and the pastors we hope to call) have gone live in the denomination’s matching system. We expect to start receiving computer generated matches with Personal Information Forms (the descriptions pastors prepare to describe their sense of call and ministry experience) any day now. Additionally, now that the positions are open we can begin to advertise them in church-wide networks. If you know qualified pastors or candidates for ministry in the PC(USA) or our full communion partners (the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, the United Church of Christ, and the Reformed Church in America) who God might be calling to serve our church, you can share the link to our MIFs that include contact information for self-referrals.
Please join the whole church in prayer for the Associate Pastor Nominating Committee as they begin to receive Personal Information Forms from potential pastors and continue discerning who God is calling to serve among us.
