Pastor Search Committee Nominations

On Thursday, April 20, I announced to our church family by video that the time had come for the search for my successor to begin. The first step in that search process is the election of a Pastor Search Committee.  Our church Bylaws state: “In the selection of the Lead Pastor, a committee of seven, to be known as the Pastor Search Committee, shall be nominated by the Overseers and elected at a regular or called business conference of the church.  This committee shall be composed...

Leadership Matters

On May 2 and 9, our Nominating Committee met to select new nominees who will be considered for service as Overseers.

It includes congregation-wide input, consideration by a Nominating Committee, personal interviews, and...

Do You Have a Recommendation?

As you likely know by now, on Thursday, April 20, I announced by video that the time has come for our church to begin the search for my successor as Lead Pastor at Ingleside. But the Lord willing, I plan to continue to serve as Lead Pastor until June 2024 while the search for my successor occurs so that a smooth passing of the leadership baton can occur next year. The first step in the process is for our church to elect a Pastor Search Committee. Our Church Bylaws state: “This...

The Bible says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17, ESV). Or, as the Message paraphrases: “anyone...
