It is our distinct pleasure to serve as the co-chairs for the senior minister search committee. We know the months ahead hold a lot of work, some difficult discussions, and the scrutiny of the congregation. This task is something the committee is taking seriously. Therefore, we have put together a plan/process to do our best to find a minister who can lead our church and take us forward in to the next chapter of our church.

How can you help?
  • Pray for the committee, the church, and our new minister. The committee asks for prayers of wisdom, discernment and harmony.

  • Understand the need for confidentiality. We ask for understanding if there are few details shared during the period of screening and interviews. We do not want to accidentally inform a minister’s current congregation that they have applied for consideration as UCC’s new senior minister. 

  • Participate in the process. Within the next month or two you will be asked for your feedback and information. Please reply! If you don’t express your opinion and provide information, its puts the committee at a disadvantage in filling this role.
