Dear Fellow Members of Good Shepherd,
As you are aware, Pastor Dave will be retiring at the end of June of 2016. As we take time over the coming months to celebrate his and Jane’s 40 years of ministry at Good Shepherd, we are also beginning the process to call the next pastor. He will work alongside Pastor Mike and be part of leading our Vision Goals as together we carry out the ministry of Good Shepherd. We have scheduled a pre-call meeting with our District President, Charlie Degner, for the evening of Sunday, December 13 (save the date!).
In preparation for that meeting, President Degner has asked the leadership to fill out a form to help him understand the direction of our congregation and the type of skills needed in a pastor to fill that. We would like to give the congregation an opportunity to give input as well. This link will take you to a form to fill out. Paper copies are available at the Welcome Center and may be turned in to the designated box in the office. Although the on-line version is not entirely anonymous, you have my word that no names will be attached to the pooled comments and data. If you are more comfortable giving your opinions anonymously, then please submit the paper version. We desire your input by November 18th so that we can review the information at our November 19th Leadership Team Meeting. Thanks for giving this some prayerful thought!
Ron Hunt, Vice President
