Call Committee Update

Working from a new list of candidates approved by District President Hagan, the Call Committee is conducting Skype interviews with seven candidates. These candidates are from different regions in the United States and have varied pastoral experiences. We spend about one hour with each candidate, asking a set of questions that address their leadership abilities, their worship style, their experience with urban and cross-cultural ministry, and their ability to lead change.

After the interviews are completed during the first week of September, the committee will meet to decide with whom we want to talk further--candidates that we interviewed last June as well as those we just interviewed. A second round of Skype interviews will then be conducted during September. The goal is to bring a recommendation to extend a call in early October.

Please continue to pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit on the work of the Call Committee and for the ministry of the candidates whom they are interviewing.
