As we communicated in late June, your Pastor Nominating Committee is working with Vanderbloemen Search Group (VSG) to identify, contact, and begin evaluating candidates for the Lead Pastor position at St. Andrew’s. The search firm has seen a steady stream of responses to the posting from a large number of interested parties. VSG is also sourcing candidates on our behalf from their own list of contacts. They have initiated conversations with qualified individuals and will get to know them more deeply as the search continues. They feel very positive about the progress of the search and the quality of candidates at this point.
As VSG does its work, your PNC continues to meet regularly to pray, review sermons by potential candidates, and prepare for the more focused and in-depth interactions to come. We remain joyfully committed to a spirit of unity and hopeful anticipation, seeking Godly discernment in identifying and calling the Lead Pastor the Lord has chosen for His unique St. Andrew’s family.
We are lifting up the congregation regularly in prayer, even as we feel your prayer support, for which we express our deepest gratitude. You will continue to hear from us on a regular basis.
He’s got this!
