JULY 2018 UPDATE
Your PSC committee continues in our work as described last month. Our sub-committees are active in their roles, one committee evaluating the application packages we continue to receive, and the other preparing for and scheduling applicant initial telephone interviews.
We appreciate your continuing support and encouragement. Our Committee members are encouraged by the process and grateful for God’s faithful leading, and we ask that you pray for our discernment and wisdom as we progress.
Consider the advice from one of the resources we’ve studied: “While a pastoral search committee should be motivated to learn a great deal in a short period of time, they cannot afford to be naïve. Indeed, they will need to carefully examine pastoral candidates in every way to see if they are a good fit.” (Chris Brauns, When the Word Leads your Pastoral Search.)
