Pastor Search

Finding a New Leader

Storyline is beginning the exciting process of finding a new Lead Pastor! In the coming weeks, we’ll be providing updates and information on this page as that process unfolds.


The basic outline of our search process is:

  • The Lead Pastor recommends to the elders a qualified interim to lead in his place.
  • The elders approve the interim and begin the process of selecting a search team.
  • The search team works with elders and staff to review potential candidates.
  • When the search team and elders have selected a candidate, he will be presented to the church at a members meeting for a majority vote.


Prayer Guide

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:4-7, NIV)

As we walk together through the process of selecting our next leader, we hope you will join us in praying! We’ve created a simple weekly prayer guide with some suggestions of how to pray during the search.
