Pastoral Search



Prayer Focus for the coming weeks:

Your elders (Session) have approved a timeline for the search for Lampstand’s next pastor. 


This month, April, two elders, Mark Gadberry and Tara Nickerson, and two deacons, Chuck Burkhart and Melysa Niebrugge, have been elected, and the congregation’s Nominating Committee is seeking four additional members for the “Pastor Nominating Committee” (PNC). 


If you would like to serve or nominate someone, please suggest their name to Elder Dave Haycraft or contact Gail in the church office.  Our goal is for the congregation to elect those nominated in early May. 


The PNC will be eight members consisting of a total of seven adults and one youth.  Currently Tara Nickerson and Sue Edie are actively working to update the Job Posting and Mission Study for the position. This posting and study will become our brochure and advertisement for the call. 


NOW:  Weekly prayer for the guidance and leading of the Holy Spirit.


Future Dates:

Early May: Congregational Meeting

Early May: Completion of Mission Study

Late May: Finalized Job Description by PNC

Late May:  ECO Presbytery of all documents

Late May:  Publication and distribution of Job posting.
