The Role of our Pastor Nominating Committee
After completion of our Church’s Mission Review, and with the approval of Presbytery, the Session recommended a Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) to be formed. The All Church Nominating Committee (ACNC) solicited recommendations from the congregation, then selected a slate of committee members. The congregation then approved the selections through a vote at our congregational meeting on April 28th, 2019. In the PC(USA), the congregation gives authority to search for a pastor to the PNC; once the PNC has been elected, neither the session nor the congregation has a role in determining the permanent pastor until the PNC is ready to present its nominee to the congregation for a vote.
The process of calling a Senior Pastor is a lengthy one, with many steps along the way, designed to assist a congregation in deciphering who God is calling to be a pastor in the next chapter of their congregation’s life and ministry.
