Associate Pastor Nominating Committee (APNC) –  Following a two month summer break, the APNC resumed its tireless efforts to find the very best candidate to fill our associate pastor position. The committee expresses a debt of gratitude to members of the congregation who recommended names of potential candidates for consideration. Each person was duly contacted. Since January, the committee has reviewed close to 90 applications, made visitations, and conducted either telephone, skype or in-person interviews with several candidates deemed to be good matches for the position. While the committee would wish to conclude the search as soon as possible, it has learned from prior APNCs, both here and elsewhere, that searches such as this one can sometimes take more than two years. The APNC remains grateful for the prayers and good wishes of the congregation as it continues its work and discernment to find an outstanding associate pastor for our church.
