The Congregation Council has identified 7 members to serve as the Call Committee for our Senior Pastor search. These faithful members represent various life stages, experiences and interests within our congregation. We pray for them and offer our support as they allow the spirit to lead them in their difficult work ahead.
Over the next few weeks, the committee will take several steps to ready themselves for the call process before screening candidates including:
Meet with the Synod office, and craft a charter & schedule for their work together.
Create a communication strategy for updating the congregation
Review the MSP and other documents to create interview questions.
Ministry Site Profile: Where we've come from, who we are, and what we hope to become.
Under the direction of Interim Senior Pastor Wende West, members of our congregation have been working to compile information from members in order to complete an official document called the Ministry Site Profile which will show the ELCA and potential call candidates
The Transition team has completed their work and the MSP is under review by the ELCA Metropolitan Synod Office. This document will be made available to pastors interested in discerning a call to Faith Lutheran Church as senior pastor.
We're grateful for this valuable learning opportunity and motivation to discover the gifts that Faith Lutheran Church has to offer the world and our community and the ways we continue to grow.
