Change in Pastoral Relations
The pastoral search is continuing despite the isolation measures. Council has directed a small team to begin updating the Church Hub profile documents, including the position description for the new minister. (Church Hub is the tool used to match churches with potential candidates.) The congregation will then be asked to approve the documents via a live video conference (details are forthcoming). The interviewing and selection can then begin! If you would like to know more about the search process, or would like to get involved, please contact Lori Armstrong in the main office, Pat Morrison, John Cooke or Kirk Wilson.
Rev. Dr. Brad Morrison's departure in June triggered a pastoral relations process prescribed by Antler River Watershed Regional Council. The process has four main stages that require about one year to complete:
- Secure a supply minister for the interim period; Complete
- Design a congregational consultation toward understanding congregational identity and mission; Complete
- Update Church Hub profile documents, including the new minister's position description; In Progress
- Interview and select a candidate.
