Pastor Search Team Updates
Below you’ll find resources and information about the process and important dates. Feel free to check back often as any news that needs to be shared with the congregation will be posted here.
News from the Team
On Sunday, 4/28, Bro. Mike announced his retirement date as Sunday, June 16th, about six weeks from now.
While the Pastor Search Committee has been working diligently since December, their deliberate process does not have them within six weeks of calling a pastor.
The Administrative Deacons, recognizing a need for continuity between the time Bro. Mike retires and the new Pastor begins his ministry, met Monday night, 4/29, and formed a committee to search for an interim pastor.
These men volunteered to act quickly to secure an interim pastor for Eastmont to begin as soon as possible after Bro. Mike’s last Sunday as pastor.
Please pray daily for Jim Hyland, Dallas Vick, and Travis Norwood as they conduct this search.
Also, please continue to pray for the Pastor Search Committee as they review resumes and conduct interviews.
David Seay, Deacon Chairman
Since our last update in the Encourager, the Pastor Search Committee has been meeting with the staff ministers individually to gain input about qualities to look for in a senior pastor. We have also developed a fasting guide and the Eastmont Senior Pastor job description. Both of these documents are accessible here at Eastmont website.
The Committee has chosen to fast periodically, we plan to food fast this Wednesday in preparation for our weekly meeting. Please feel free to join us in this effort, if you are medically able to do so. Or, if you are fasting from something other than food, please use that free time to pray for us and continue to study I & II Timothy and Titus. We are grateful to Cleve Mallory, and Art Long who published videos to support our studies of I & II Timothy. We look forward to Gene Kim’s videos on the book of Titus in March.
The Senior Pastor job description was posted last Friday (3/1) on our website, and we are receiving resumes. Also, we are reaching out to other state Conventions and Baptist seminaries to post the job description.
The committee, which meets at least weekly, is composed of Cindy Pitts, Courtney Corum, Brian Clements, Travis Jordan, David Seay, Jerry Short, and chairman, Brian Key. Please continue to pray for us.
Prayer and Fasting Guide
We want to thank you for your continued prayers, support and encouragement. We would like to share with you a guide to help you study the New Testament books of I and II Timothy, and Titus. This guide will help you study scripture and pray along with us now through March 2019.
We have developed a fasting guide to help those who are medically able, to join us at periodic fasting.
We are looking forward to seeing what the Lord has in store for Eastmont.
