MESSAGE FROM PASTOR SEARCH COMMITTEE CHAIR
Dear Church Family,
As you know, your Pastor Search Committee (PSC) has been at work since its formation and dedication on March 13th, 2016. To facilitate the process of identifying the individual the Lord has already selected for FBC, the PSC has established three phases that will culminate in a recommendation of the next Senior Pastor of FBCTLH. Phase 1 will provide the foundational materials including the Church Profile and the Pastor Profile. Phase 2, the Search and Discernment phase, will involve acceptance of nominations and applications, evaluation, and selection of applicants. Phase 3, calling the next Senior Pastor, will involve a recommendation from the PSC to the Deacons and the Church extending a call and the process of transitioning the Senior Pastor into his role.
As part of our Phase 1 process and through this correspondence, we are kindly requesting that you join us in daily prayer for the PSC and the Church as a whole during this transition period. Also as part of the Phase 1 process, we are inviting the church family to participate in an upcoming pastor profile survey which will be launched on May 8th, 2016. On May 1st and 8th, representatives of the PSC will be visiting all SMBS groups to announce the survey details and how to access the survey. We will ask that you prayerfully devote about 10 minutes of your time in answering the survey questions when they are made available. Your answers are very essential in helping us accurately formulate questions to prospective candidates and, more importantly, will greatly shape our thoughts and ideas in identifying our next Senior Pastor—and yes, they are that important.
Thank you for your prayers, participation in the Pastor Profile survey, and the search process as a whole. Be blessed.
~ Seth Y. Ablordeppey, FBCTLH PSC Chair
