May – June 2018
+ Five sharing sessions were conducted by the committee to share survey results with interested congregational members
+ The committee began their work of taking survey results to complete the Pastoral Profile Ranking
July – August 2018
The committee prepared the following documents:
+ Pastoral Profile Ranking
+ Associate Pastor Job Description
+ A form for receiving nominations from the congregation members for submission to District
The committee held four congregation information meetings over two weekends in September to share the above information. At that meeting, the committee also gave an overview of the call process while sharing a tentative timeline moving forward.
