A Note from Patty Baum Haydon, PNC Chair
When I was called to serve on your Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) I was both humbly honored and terribly nervous. I was excited to serve the church using a skill set I use regularly in my career, but I also walked into this eyes-wide-open: this is a tall order and, frankly, I feel the pressure. University Presbyterian Church has been my home for nearly 10 years and became a part of my life when I needed it most. This congregation is wonderfully unique and is made up of some of the most impressive yet down-to-earth people I have ever met. I have formed life-long friendships through the Young Adults group, have served the church through committees, have seen the church’s future in the eyes of the PCM students I have mentored, and got married here last summer.
This community has challenged me and my faith in ways I didn’t think possible, but has also supported me so graciously on that journey. UPC feels like home. I can never repay this church for the ways it has changed my life--the ways you have changed my life. And so, I want to do right by every one of you as we do this work.

In the weeks to come you will see personal reflections from the committee members in the bulletin each week. The work we do is on the church’s behalf and we hope these reflections will offer more insight into who we are and how we are moving through the process. You may have noticed that there is now another check mark on the PNC timeline on the wall outside of Margaret’s office. We invite you to stop by to see the progress we have made and to visit our website where you can learn more: https://upcch.org/pnc/. Even though we are moving into a phase along the journey where we must keep the confidences of those we are considering, we are happy and excited to share other specifics with you about our work and I invite you to engage with us. As always, we remain grateful for your trust and your prayers. Peace be with you.
