Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC)
On October 14, 2018 SAPC held a special congregational meeting to elect members to serve on a Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC). In so doing, the congregation commissioned the PNC to search for a new pastor. SAPC's PNC consists of two (2) active Elders, one (1) active Deacon, and four (4) members-at-large, one of whom is a youth. The make-up of SAPC's PNC is as balanced as possible with regard to male/female and young/old. Those elected on October 14th were: Greg Burkes, Shirley Colburn, Robert Glance, Crissy Kuhl, Brooke Sheehan, Haley Culp, and Corey Glenn (youth). The PNC meets on a frequent and regular schedule, and its work is confidential. The PNC has developed and the Session has approved a Ministry Information Form (MIF), which provides a narrative picture of the mission and ministry of the congregation and its sense of call. This form will be entered into the Church Leadership Connection (CLC), a web-based tool in the call process that helps search committees and candidates make an initial connection. This initial connection is followed, where indicated, by a deeper exchange of information, conversation and discernment. At the end of the screening, interview, and evaluation process, the PNC will select and nominate a candidate to be SAPC's next pastor.
With God's continued grace and direction, SAPC is continuing to Opening Doors To Serve Christ.
