05 Sep Update #4: Search Team Dives In
This week, our Pastor Search Team gathered for their first meeting, officially taking the next step in the Pastor Search Process. That team includes our Elders – Jeff Schaffer, Dennis Horner, and Tim Golen – as well as four members nominated by the congregation – Linda Galambos, Laura Beth Goodwin, Steve Meyerhoff, and Dan Toppen. On the team in advisory roles are Storyline Strategic Coordinator Lindsay Acocella, as well as church member and Executive Director of the Colorado Baptist General Convention Nathan Lorick.
The meeting time was well spent, as team members began discussing the details and next steps in the process. The first items to tackle will include developing the pastor profile for the leader we feel would be the best fit for Storyline, as well as creating a church profile that would represent Storyline to potential candidates.
After a time of productive discussion and agreeing on next steps, the team spent concentrated time in prayer together, and committed to individual and group prayer devoted to this process. The team has begun to read together two books: Search: The Pastoral Search Committee Handbook, by William Vanderbloemen, and Draw the Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge, by Mark Batterson.
Will you pray with and for the Pastor Search Team during this season?
