In the last two months, our Pastor Search Committee has met regularly, as often as four times a week. We have entered the latter stages of the Lead pastor search during which we’ve had face-to-face conversations (following two lengthy telephone interviews) with our 12-member Committee and our finalist candidates. Please be encouraged! These candidates are each exceptional and they share a deep appreciation for Bay Presbyterian Church’s rich heritage and exciting future.
As we move toward agreement on a finalist for the Lead Pastor position, we are also following the necessary and wise procedural steps outlined earlier including background and reference checks, and continuing our collaboration with our Evangelical Presbyterian Church Presbytery of the Alleghenies.
We expect to have made a decision and an announcement to our church family by December 1.
The members of our Committee thank you all for your encouragement and prayer. Please know that we pray for you, and your families, and for the people we hope will come to know and love Jesus through BPC as we submit ourselves and our best efforts to discern and act in accordance with God’s will and loving intentions toward Bay Presbyterian Church.
