Senior Pastor Search Update

The Overseer Team is approaching this process prayerfully and thoughtfully, but with the complete confidence that God has already chosen the best Senior Pastor for us.

We have selected Slingshot as our recruitment firm and they are helping us source candidates from across the nation. If we haven’t answered your questions below, please let us know.


How long will it take to search for and select a new Senior Pastor?

Between 4–8 months.

What is the application process for candidates interested in the Senior Pastor role?

The Overseer Team has selected Slingshot, a national recruitment firm, to help with the initial screening of all candidates. Slingshot will select the top 5-7 candidates and will present them to the search committee who will interview them.

How will we receive information about the progression of the search process?

We will mainly communicate updates on Enews and occasionally during the Sunday service. Be sure to subscribe to Enews to receive updates.

How can I be involved?
