Aug 5 Associate Pastor Call Update

Aug. 5: The Associate Pastor Call Committee met on July 24, 2017, to finalize the interview questions for the Skype interviews and to narrow the field of candidates. The Call Committee will then phone six candidates to participate in interviews which will be conducted August 14 and 15. The individual names will be provided to the congregation after the candidates are scheduled for an interview time. The Call Committee will meet on August 21 to debrief the interviews and narrow down the list in preparation for in-person interviews. In the meantime, the required background checks will be ordered.

June 12: Pastor Nadasdy, our District President, provided a list of 18 names to our Circuit Visitor, Pastor Lyle Fritsch, and the chair of the Associate Pastor Call Committee, Sue Reinke Walch on June 1st. Pastor Nadasdy followed up by sending a packet of personal profiles on each of these individual pastors to Pastor Fritsch. The Call Committee has set a meeting for June 13th (Pastor Koglin returns from vacation on June 12th) to begin the process of prayerfully considering these candidates and respectfully shortening the list. Please note: this is a confidential process, so don't expect detailed information right away. Pray for the Holy Spirit’s presence in all the hearts and minds involved in this process. God has this decision made already and in His wisdom will bring us together with our new pastor.
