Family Ministries Pastor Search: Update
As you all know we are well into our search to add another pastor to our team here at Discovery. We envision this pastor being particularly invested in children's and youth ministries in a way that also equips and encourages the parents of all our young people. This is why we're calling this position a Pastor of Family Ministries. This position provides yet one more person to give most of his attention to building up the church and equipping us for ministry. We also envision this addition to our staff enabling us to expand our reach to the community. In short, we believe the church will grow both numerically and spiritually by calling one more pastor.
We are pleased to announce that, at this point, our team has decided to concentrate our attention on one applicant alone. This focus allows us to wholly devote ourselves to discerning together whether or not God is calling this person to Discovery Church. There are a series of reference calls and interviews still ahead of us that will likely fill up our schedules through the holiday season. If those interviews go well, Lord willing, we will be ready to introduce him to the congregation early in the New Year so that the brothers and sisters of Discovery can get acquainted with and examine him as well. Be praying for this man and his family as we work closely with him to discern God's call on his life.
