PSC Blog # 3 - Congregational Survey
This coming Sunday, November 3rd, you will be given the opportunity to complete a congregational survey and actively participate in our pastor search. The purpose of this survey is to gain a better understanding of the characteristics members see as the most important pertaining to our next pastor. As discussed in our previous Blog, we will not be developing a rigid set of criteria to use in selecting our next pastor; rather, the PSC will use the information provided to develop a general pastoral profile. It’s important to remember, we are seeking God’s Man, in God’s Time, No Exceptions. While developing a pastoral profile is part of the process we’re going through; the man God has identified may or may not fit within an established profile.
Survey results will be for PSC use only. Surveys will be available before and after Sunday morning service. For those who wish to turn them in at the end of the service, ushers have been asked to collect them and provide them to the team. The PSC is requesting that all surveys be returned no later than Sunday, November 10th. In addition to hard copy distribution, a church wide email will be sent out that will include the survey as an attachment. Church members will be given the opportunity to print, complete, and return a hard copy, or submit an electronic copy via email. Submission instructions will be included in the email.
Once again, the PSC requests that you commit this item to prayer. Please prayerfully evaluate your responses to all questions. Additionally, we request that you make every effort to look beyond any personal preferences you may have and think through what would be most beneficial to the church as a whole.
