November Senior Minister Search Committee Report

Encouraging Prayer by the Congregation for our next Senior Minister
Written by the Board of Elders Prayer Team: Jim Feenstra, David Rix, Nora Laver, and Heather Lewis

On October 23, 2016, the Senior Minister Search Committee was commissioned at all three services. 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 prayer, even daily, as they work to select a candidate to be our next senior pastor.


  • for the committee to seek God’s leading through frequent prayer
  • for wisdom as they organize the work to be done
  • for a healthy spirit of cooperation and understanding among the committee
  • for God’s blessing on their efforts in this important task
  • that God will even now be preparing our next senior pastor for the tasks ahead
