Pastoral Transition at First Presbyterian

As we updated last month, after spending the summer reading PIFS and listening to sermons for almost 150 interested candidates, our work is entering a new phase. This phase narrows the candidates to a much smaller list (15-20) for informational interviews which begin next week. These are candidates whose sermons, as well as write ups about their experience and perspective (PIFS), have resonated with our Mission Review documents and the PNC. These phone conversations will be followed by rounds of video and personal interviews that we expect to result in a small group of finalists from which to select the candidate to be presented to the congregation.

We feel blessed and humbled by the quality and quantity of nominations we have received. The pulpit at Old First continues to have wide appeal and recognition within and beyond the denomination. We also appreciate the thoughtful effort each of these candidates has put into their submissions. We are working hard to ensure we are equally careful, respectful, and thorough in our review.

As always, we request your continued prayers as well as your patience during this challenging but exciting process.
