PSC Blog # 8 - Top Five

PSC Blog # 8 - Top Five

Dear Church,

The PSC wanted to take a moment to provide a quick update as to where we are at in the process of identifying the man who will be our next Senior Pastor. We continue to follow a very structured process and have spent a great deal of time praying, individually and collectively, that God will lead us to the man He already knows will be our next pastor. 

On 4 May, the PSC trimmed our list of candidates from seventy-six to eleven. The committee spent countless hours evaluating resumes, praying over those resumes and ultimately identifying the group of candidates we felt most strongly could lead FBC Burk. The following day, all candidates received notification of their status with respect to whether or not they were still being considered. Our final eleven was quickly reduced to ten as one candidate declined to be considered further. This coming Sunday, 17 May at 2:00 PM, we ask that you pray for the PSC as we meet to further reduce our list of candidates to five. It is extremely exciting to finally be at the point in the process where we are making contact with potential candidates! Once we have identified our top five candidates, those candidates will receive a list of survey questions (between 5 and 10) that will assist the committee in identifying one candidate that we will pursue uniquely. If everything goes according to plan, we should be interviewing a single candidate within a few weeks!

Now, more than ever, the PSC covets your prayers. Without a doubt the enemy will be more determined than ever to derail our efforts and sow disunity amongst the team as we enter this final stage. We ask that you join us in praying that:

  • The PSC will remain unified throughout this process

  • The man God has identified as our next pastor will be led by the Holy Spirit just as the PSC is being led

  • Our church is ready to accept the leading of our new pastor and join with him as he helps establish a vision for the future of FBC Burk

We truly appreciate the support we have received from the congregation during the process and I can unequivocally say that the entire PSC wants nothing more, and nothing less, than to find God’s Man, In God’s Time, No Exceptions!  

In Him,

Pastor Search Committee
