What is MSP?
MSP stands for Ministry Site Profile. A Ministry Site Profile is created by a congregation as part of the process in seeking a new pastor.
It is a description of our congregation and the qualities we are looking for in a pastor. (It’s also 10 pages long!) Potential candidates will be looking at this document to gain an understanding of who we are, where our passions lie and what type of leadership we are looking for, to see if he/she might be a fit.
What it is not- - It is not the Call Committee! That comes later in the process.
There is a 3-person team working on this:
Their goal is to prepare a DRAFT of the MSP which will 1) be reviewed by the Bishop and 2) be voted on by Joy’s congregation.
Some of the information such as Eagle River’s population and demographics will be taken directly from online resources, etc. But, much of the MSP requires input from our congregation. Your MSP team will be using surveys and discussion groups to draw out your ideas and opinions.
We are hoping you will thoughtfully consider the questions and joyfully participate in the process!
