Update:  November 5, 2018

“We are approaching the end of our ’40 days of seeking’ as the position closes on November 9th.  We have received a vast number of resumes, over 175 and the next task is daunting.  Starting November 11, the committee members will begin reviewing each application resume.  Each resume will be independently evaluated twice with the goal of reducing the number significantly.  The goal is to come up with around 40 which we like look at more closely as the entire committee.  Each person who is not selected in this round will be notified so they are aware of their status in the process.  We expect this process to last 30 days.

I know you have been praying for our committee but in this period it is essential that you continue to support these fine brothers and sisters.  This will be the most difficult portion as each individual considers all these excellent candidates and selects the best ones.

We are working to discover the man God has already ordained to become our next pastor.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please contact me directly.  I am striving to be a good steward of the task the church has laid upon me and the other members of the committee.

In Christ Alone,

Roy Emond, Search Committee Chair  – Contact Information Above


Update:  October 20, 2018

We have finished the survey of the congregation and compiled the data.  The results of the survey will help the search committee as they prayerfully review the applications and resumes that we receive.  We are now in a 40 day season of receiving resumes from men who are interested in the position.  The end of the 40 days is November 9th.  While we may continue to receive some responses, this will mark the beginning of the evaluation process.  Each resume will be reviewed by two committee members independently.  We will then begin the process of narrowing down the field.  It is crucial that our people join in pray with the committee members.  We are trusting God to guide us as you are trusting us to be led by His Spirit.  


If anyone has any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.  I will be happy to talk with you or with a group that might want some more information.  


Please direct questions to members of the committee and most of all keep us in prayer.
