At the Session meeting on September 3, senior pastor Robert F. McAndrew announced his plans to retire, effective August 31, 2019. We are honored to have had Bob as our senior pastor for so many years, thankful that he has given us a year to make this transition, and above all else, grateful to God that He, as our perfect shepherd, ministers to His flock through human shepherds like Bob and our next senior pastor.
So… what’s next? Below, we have provided a high level snapshot of what a pastoral search looks like. [The PCA process of calling a pastor is found in the PCA Book of Church Order, Chapter 20.]
Phase 2: Congregation elects the senior pastor search committee
Below is the list of people who were voted during the January 13 Congregational Meeting to make up the Pastor Search Committee. Please continue to be in prayer for them and the entire pastor search process.
ALTERNATES: Audrey Nelms and Carter Newell
In this period of waiting and during every step of this process, we ask you to join us in prayer. A Pastoral Search Prayer Guide is available in hard copy at the church, or can be accessed electronically below.
There are also several opportunities to join in corporate prayer as we seek the Lord in this process:
Sunday, January 13, 2019, immediately following the 12 PM Congregational Meeting
Wednesday, February 6, 2019 from 6 PM—8 PM
Sunday, March 3, 2019, during Sunday School from 9:45 AM—10:45 AM
Sunday, May 5, 2019 from 5 PM—6 PM
