It’s been nearly a year since the Pastor Search Team first sat down to pray and plan about finding a new senior pastor at our church. We have had dozens of meetings, read hundreds of applications, asked thousands of questions, and the good news is… we’re getting much closer.
Trusting God every step of the way, we are now at the stage of personally interviewing the top pool of candidates. We are excited about each one of these men: they are gifted, godly, and able to teach and lead. Over the next few weeks we will be speaking with each of them and getting to know them even better. We have many more phone calls to make, more sermons to listen to, and fairly soon some miles will be traveled to meet one another’s communities. We’re excited.
Specifically, would you join us in prayer for the following:
1. That God would continue to lead FBC to the place and person He has prepared for us (Exodus 23:30).
2. For the Holy Spirit to illuminate all the conversations and bring the things we need to see to light. We can only see a person’s exterior, but God knows the heart. Please pray for him to reveal hearts.
3. Pray for each of the candidates. God has a good and perfect will for each of them, and this is a long journey for them and their families. Please pray for their protection and guidance, and that God would lead them each to exactly the next step he has for each, wherever that may be.
4. Pray for the Search Team: for energy, clarity and a continued dependence on God.
May His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Thanks for standing with us in prayer,
Bronwyn (for the Search Team)
