The Pastoral Search Team in conjunction with Ministry & Counsel are actively searching for a pastor as well as the open children’s ministry position. We have speakers through the summer to allow time to conduct a thorough search and find the right leadership for our meeting versus a quick fix. Feel free to reach out to Ministry & Counsel or our search team (Heather Thompson, Kevin Albertson, Scott Haynes, Gayle Lambeth, Lorie McCroskey, David Spell, Gwyn Riddick, and Alex Millikan).
