Senior Pastor Search News
On March 3rd we concluded our series of congregational gatherings discussing topics and issues that have emerged throughout this process. We had fruitful input and will take those thoughts and ideas to the PNC so that they can use the information as they consider our pastor candidates.
Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC)
The Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) has started its work. The committee members are Debbie Saylor, Sarah Coates, Mary Anne Cimbriez, Ed Daniel, Kathy Force, Paul Girouard, Al Norby, Maureen Thayer, Glenda Hastings, and Addie Schraver.
They have completed their orientation with a Committee on Ministry liaison from the Presbytery and are digesting all of the information from our CAT Survey, annual reports, five-year congregational statistics, and input from the Congregational Gatherings in order to begin writing our Ministry Information Form (MIF), which will serve as our church’s resumé for pastor candidates to consider whether to apply for our pastor position. This process normally takes many weeks of hard work. Please pray for this group as it begins its important work and for the pastor whom God is already in the process of preparing to move to Perinton and share ministry with us.
