PNC News

Update Given in Worship on May 1

We have been working steadily and faithfully in the process to narrow down our pool of over 100 candidates.  We have weeded out and prioritized and now down to a workable number. It is a lengthy process to review PIFs and listen to sermons.  This has been a very positive experience for all of the committee members, and we are feeling very good about the process and where we are now. 
 
Once we feel we have a strong candidate, we meet with the COM Transitions in Ministry for a fit and suitability interview.  When that is approved, we discern whether this is the candidate to present.  If so, we begin negotiating terms of call.  If someone is coming from outside our presbytery, then they have a meeting with the examination team.  While we might think we have the right person, the candidate is also discerning if FPC is the right church for them. Please continue to keep the PNC in your prayers.

PNC Update for January 16, 2022

Session approved the MIF (Ministry Information Form) at their stated meeting on Sunday, January 16. This is a huge step in the process of calling a new pastor. The next step is to send the MIF to the Transitions in Ministry Task Force of Salem Presbytery for their approval on January 27.
 
Once the form has been approved, the next step will be to have the Presbytery office help us to put the MIF online for prospective candidates to review.
 
We will continue to keep you posted on our progress.
