Call Committee Update.
The Call Committee has almost finished its work on the seven essay questions from the Ministry Site profile designed to help us summarize the current life of our congregation to prospective candidates; and, starting next week, the Committee will begin to draw up possible questions we will use in the upcoming congregational survey.
In the meantime, we are pleased by how many of you have come forward to members of the Call Committee with your thoughts about what you hope to see in our next pastor. We have received your input in writing and in person as we have talked to each other whenever possible, and we have found your thoughts to be helpful and insightful. Interestingly enough, leadership style seems to be a theme in what is being presented to us – although that may be due to the fact that the Committee had as its goal last week to make sure we contacted all our staff members for their input.
Nevertheless, the important thing is that the Call Committee continues to want your ideas, and we hope you will let us know what you think is important. You can not only tell us what you want and feel is important to have in our next pastor, but you may also tell us what you don’t want or don’t like.
After next week’s meeting, the Call Committee (Randy Presuhn, Chair, Paul Thomas, Sarah Janigian, Matt Byom, Adolfo Ramirez, and Julia Tranchina), will take a break for the holidays and then will resume meeting again in early January.
Please continue to keep the Call Committee and its work in your prayers.
Christ the Good Shepherd
