Check back for regular updates on the Lead Pastor Search.
Three main points to update:
1. The search team is confident and excited about our partnership with search firm NL Moore and Associates. They have made over 400 contacts nationally on behalf of Christ Community Church and have a very good understanding of what our team is looking for in a candidate. They have come along side us to help develop the interview process and we are ready for video and on campus interviews. We have 3 candidates in the 'pipeline' and are seeking 5-6 total candidates to begin interviews. In a few weeks (i.e. mid-Nov) the search team will be presented with the candidates and will start the review and initial interview process.
2. The search team is working very well together and is a unique and diverse group who are excited about representing the needs and desires of the CCC congregation. We encourage everyone to join the search team in continuing to pray for the next lead pastor for CCC. In particular, we have been praying that the right candidates would respond to the Holy Spirit prompting them to take the time to thoughtfully consider and apply for this opportunity. We know life is busy and sometimes it can be tough to stop and listen and take action to respond to God's voice.
3. God is moving in our community in exciting ways and our search for a lead pastor is part of a new work that God is doing within CCC and beyond our walls. We are thankful for the chance to pray and participate with God as He leads us forward.
On behalf of the elder board and the lead pastor search committee, we’d like to share an update on the search process and ask for your prayers as we begin meeting with candidates.
There are several reminders and updates to share.
First, we want to remind you about the search team for this process. This group was named in May and has been diligently working on the search and interview process. Below you will find a link to bios of the members of our search team. If you have any questions or comments about the search, you can send a message to . You can also provide feedback to the elders by connecting with any of them in person or emailing .
Second, we’re asking all of our church family to continue to pray for this search. With the help of NL Moore we’ve developed a list of five areas to pray for which include praying for our staff, our congregation, our elder board, our next pastor and the search consultant. You can download the prayer list here.
We also want to share more about the process and where we are in it. Here is NL Moore's Process Overview. We’re currently in stage three of five and we will begin meeting with candidates soon.
If you’re interested in the posting, or sharing it, you can view the Opportunity Snapshot here. This snapshot was developed by NL Moore based on the interviews and survey earlier this summer.
Your participation in this process is very important to us. Please pray for our church, the search process and the next lead pastor during the coming months. Thank you!
