The first step following a pastor’s departure is to assess the new place in which a congregation finds itself, in order to discern its new leadership and staffing needs. The Council is undertaking this review and feels it is important to examine our ministry needs before rushing any call process.
In that regard, if you see areas of ministry focus that you believe are unaddressed, or inadequately addressed, by our current staffing and ministry configuration, please bring that to Pastor Frank’s attention, or to the attention of any Councilmember.
So, first steps first - a new portfolio and job description. The formation of a Call committee is down the line.
