December Senior Minister Search Committee Report

Written by the Board of Elders Prayer Team: Jim Feenstra, Nora Laver, Heather Lewis, David Rix.

The Senior Minister Search Committee is: Herman Smith (chair), Diana Bennett, Simon Chang, Rebecca Heidgerd, John Liu, Tom Miller, David Murgatroyd, Martha Neu, Alex Pless, Dan Vogelzang, and Brian Winey.

We encourage the congregation to hold up this committee in daily prayer as they work to select a candidate to be our next senior pastor.


  • for God’s leading during the committee weekly meetings with focused discussions to outline the search process
  • for God’s wisdom to begin a church profile at a retreat in early December
  • for guidance as the committee plans to meet with different groups in the church after the holidays
  • for the right date to announce the opening of the search process for prospective applicants
