The Associate Pastor Nominating Committee decided at the end of July to suspend its meetings until after Labor Day. We met again on September 8 and began reviewing applications that included both new applicants and ones that had been tabled while we were in discussions with a candidate that did not prove fruitful. During the past month, we have interviewed four candidates with a fifth being scheduled. Two candidates have been referred to Pastor Jeff for him to talk with the candidates.
As these discussions move forward, we ask for your continued prayers for God to bring discernment to our deliberations. Please pray for the pastors with whom we are speaking as they and their congregations are experiencing the same pandemic-related issues that we are facing at North Lake.
As the APNC continues to move forward with the process, we are counting on your continued prayers for God to lead us to the person he has chosen to be our next Associate Pastor.
Thank you, God Bless and Stay Safe,
Your APNC – Bill Johnston, Sue Kirkpatrick, John Lazo, Tom Miller, Nancy Re, Bob Taylor, and Linda Williams
