FROM YOUR PASTOR

HERE WE GO!

 At its meeting on Sunday, February 16, the Session passed the following motion,  “That the Session  instruct the Nomination Committee to recruit  five people to act as a Pulpit Nominating Committee for the  purpose of seeking an installed pastor.”

        After much prayer and deliberation, the Session believes it is time to step out in faith and return our church to the position of having its own installed pastor. There are several steps involved in the process OF which you will want to be aware.

·       When the Nominating Committee has recruited a slate of five people, a congregational meeting will be called to elect a Pulpit Nominating Committee. Those five names will be placed in nomination and the floor will be opened for further nominations. When the nominations cease, five will be elected.

·       Before starting their search, the PNC will hold several congregational gatherings to ask the congregation what talents and abilities they want in a pastor. Presbytery will send representatives to help with this process. With the congregation’s advice and consent, the PNC will create a profile of the person they are seeking.

·       Once the PNC is elected, the Session has no further input into their activities. A PNC is a congregational committee and reports only to the congregation at a formally called congregational meeting. Their activities and deliberations are to remain secret during their search.

·       When the search is complete and they are ready to present a name, a congregational meeting will be called and the PNC will present a name to be voted on.

The decision to seek an installed pastor now is an act of faith. It shows our confidence that God has a future for this church in the days and years ahead. We are stepping out into the unknown believing that God will guide our journey.
