GOD, WHO ARE YOU CALLING TO LEAD THIS CHURCH? 

SHOW US YOUR CHOICE

 Recently I looked through my 2020 calendar and it was pretty empty after March 15 until I noticed PNC ZOOM meetings popping up every Wednesday.  Our one-year anniversary on June 18 is still over two months away!  On that date in 2020 we met for the first time with Rev. Donnie R. Woods, the Charleston Atlantic Presbyter, for training. Donnie told us that a PNC typically works between 9 months and 3 1/2 years!  In the past, YPPC PNCs have spent about two years searching for a pastor. 

 The PNC started working on June 24 and spent the next 2 3/4 months preparing the church’s Ministry Information Form (MIF).  Creating this form is like painting…it’s all in the preparation.  Do the prep and the rest of the job will be easier with better results.

 The PNC began receiving Personal Information Forms (PIFs) in mid-October and to date the committee has reviewed approximately 150. 

 God’s timing is at work.  And that timing must be right for both the church and the pastor.  Your PNC is determined not to “settle” for a pastor just to have someone fill the pulpit and the pastor’s study.  You elected us and charged us with a task that is too important to just “settle”!  We’re looking for the right person to welcome into the YPPC church family; someone who will be here for several years. 

 I copied this from a recent devotional… “God spoke from heaven and commanded the disciples to listen to Jesus.  When we actively listen, we don’t simply hear the Spirit speaking into our hearts, but we respond to what we hear.  We are in humble obedience and follow in trust, because the Light of the World leads us.” 

 Trust…obedience…actively listening to and responding to God…your PNC is very busy!
