Over the last month, the Pastor Nominating Committee has been very busy. The Ministry Information Form (Job and Ministry Description) was completed and sent to the Session for approval. Once approved, it was forwarded to Salem Presbytery. The form was approved at the end of June. The approved form was uploaded to the PC(USA) search website and went live on July 11th.
Since the Ministry Information Form started circulating, the PNC has received over 25 applications. Each application is reviewed as it is received and placed in one of two categories: 1) For further consideration; or 2) Not a good fit. Applications will continue to be accepted and ranked over the next 4-6 weeks. The next step will be prioritizing the top candidates and asking for sermon recordings/videos from them. As candidates rise to the top of consideration, interviews will be scheduled. Please continue to pray for the discernment of the PNC.
