PASTOR NOMINATING Committee ~ December Update

November 29, 2012

 Pastor Nominating Committee
Merry Christmas from your Pastor Nominating Committee,

Your Pastor Nominating Committee was busy during the month of November. We worked very hard to complete the Church Information Form (CIF) and have it approved so that it
could be entered on the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) website.

With the help and attention of our Session, the Personnel Committee and Committee on Ministry (COM), we were able to complete this process a month early. We received word that our CIF was approved on Wednesday, November 14, 2012, and we began to receive Pastor Information Forms (PIF) within the next 20 minutes. That was good news for the PNC and the work that they have done, and it is good news for the church.  It is an indicator of the interest pastors have in our church and community. 

Staff and Crowns – Good Shepard Window

We are prepared to continue the diligence necessary to complete this project and find our next head-of-staff. We ask for your continued prayers as we proceed.

Keep us in your prayers,
Terrie Gulden (Chair), Dan Iveland (Vice Chair),
Becky Eeten (Secretary), Katie Eeten, Ann Robinson,
Amanda Van Maanen, Erin Sandstede, Phil Voigt,
Todd Wessels, Kathy Knips (Committee on Ministry Liaison)
