Congregational Update
Oct 16, 2016 

Your PNC has been meeting weekly now for one full year. After reviewing information on hundreds of candidates and watching dozens and dozens of sermons online, we have engaged in direct discussions with a number of potential candidates, and we have gone to watch several preach in person. With so many important considerations, this is not a simple task or process.

It is time consuming and also involves a lot of scheduling and coordination. Your PNC, however, is navigating these complexities in a very collegial, collaborative, and prayerful fashion.

As previously reported, we narrowed our focus to a group of potential finalists while remaining open to considering additional candidates as well. We had hoped we might have our final candidate to present to you in November, but that has proven to be too optimistic. The process will take more time, but it’s most important to get this done right.

We are seeing and meeting some excellent candidates and inspiring Christians with a variety of gifts and talents. We want to be led to the candidate whom God is calling to be the next Senior Pastor at LCPC. We sense God’s will in our process and trust the decision and timing thereof to Him.

So please continue your prayer support for us, for the process, for discernment, and for the candidates under consideration. The PNC appreciates your support. Thank you.
