Interim Search Committee

 

Dear Friends,

We are the members of the Interim Search Committee (the committee), and we wanted to take just a moment to let you know we are fully engaged in our work to recommend to session an interim pastor.

The committee is comprised of five MSPC elders: Linda Nance, Personnel and Administration; Margaret Erickson, Treasurer; Keith White, Stewardship and Finance; Frank Marasco, Building and Grounds, and Phil Zamora, Communication.

Our Book of Order (G-2.0504b) calls for session, with approval of presbytery, to “obtain the services of a teaching elder, candidate, or ruling elder in a temporary pastoral relationship.” While our work must remain confidential, we recognize the need to provide brief updates on our progress.

The committee held its first meeting on Thursday, May 13, and agreed to meet weekly, until we have made our recommendation to session. Session will then vote to approve our recommendation; once approved, the committee will have completed its work.

We ask for your prayers of support and prayers for discernment to bless and guide our work. We will make periodic updates and invite you to stay tuned for those announcements.

Thank you for all the ways you support Madison Square Presbyterian Church.

In Christ,

The Interim Search Committee
