Update on the Teaching Pastor Search
When the Pastor Search Team convened in November, a January 9, 2018 deadline was set for receiving applications. There were some quiet days on the application front over Christmas, but still we continued to hear from people. Forty-eight applications have come in to date. The search team has been carefully and prayerfully evaluating each application to determine the potential fit at Lakeside. At this point in our process, we will narrow the list down to a shorter number with whom we will have more detailed conversations, which will lead to interviews with the search team.
We continue as a team to speak those words of faith over this whole process, believing that God is leading someone to Lakeside. It is a tremendous blessing that all of these qualified individuals see themselves as potentially serving the Lord as Lakeside’s Teaching Pastor. It is reminding us of the Apostle Paul’s words that, “he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
