As your Overseers, we wanted to provide a brief update on the search process for our next Lead Pastor. We are incredibly grateful for the continued prayers and support of our congregation as we seek God’s will.
Throughout October, we have continued with the process of interviewing and evaluating candidates as outlined in this previous update:
We recently narrowed the search to two candidates. Over the past week, both candidates have spent time with the Overseers, the Staff Advisory Group, and the two epikos Advisory Groups. We have been incredibly encouraged by the sincere engagement of these groups to prayerfully consider these candidates with us.
As we conclude the interview process for these two candidates, we are praying for a clear calling for us and for them about who God has to lead epikos in our mission of making more and better disciples. Expecting that we will find that calling with one of these candidates, we hope to nominate him to go before the Covenant Members for a vote before the end of this year. We invite you to join us in prayer and fasting as we look forward to this final nomination!
If you have any questions about our process, please don’t hesitate to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
