Ask The Pastor

Our first visit from a potential pastor recommended by the Call Committee, is January 31-February 3. A Town Hall meeting will be held on Saturday, February 2, 1:30-3:00pm in the sanctuary. He will share a little about himself and his vision for ministry. He will also answer questions from the congregation. The Call Committee asks members to submit questions now until Wednesday, January 23 via below (click read more) , emailing call@folcp.com or dropping them in the designated box in the narthex. Also, his profile is available for viewing in the fellowship hall and in the binder narthex.


Update December 30, 2018

A town hall meeting was held on Sunday, Dec 16th to review where we are in the call process. Importantly, we compared and contrasted two pastoral candidates whose beliefs and values align with Fountain of Life and who are available for a call.  The Call Committee presented our recommendation, and the congregation voted on which pastor to invite for an in-person visit. We hope to have a visit from a candidate during the month of January.

To review brief biographical profiles, as well as the Call Committee’s evaluation of the two candidates, please refer to the call process binder located in the narthex. Feel free to approach any member of the call committee with questions you may have.

God’s Blessings,

Call Committee

Update November 26, 2018

The Call Committee met in November to review the pastoral profiles provided to us. After reviewing the profiles, we are excited to share that we have an outstanding list of pastors with a variety of skills and passions who we think would be a great fit at Fountain of Life.  The committee has started reaching out to individual candidates to identify those who are open to conducting a phone conversation with the committee. After those conversations are completed, the Call Committee will hold a Town Hall Meeting to present a summary of these pastors, allowing the congregation to determine who to invite to visit Fountain of Life.  We ask for your continued prayers going forward as God works to connect us with our next pastor.

God’s Blessings,

Call Committee

 



Update November 1, 2018

The Call Committee is actively reviewing profiles of pastoral candidates. Once the committee has reviewed the profiles and discussed the candidates, we will begin reaching out to set up phone discussions. Throughout this process we will be compiling what we learn into summaries that will be shared with the congregation at town hall meetings. The summaries are intended to present the strengths of each candidate in order to help the congregation vote on which candidate to invite for an in-person visit. This is an exciting time in the call process, and we ask for continued prayers.

Update October 30, 2018

Update September 25, 2018

Dear Fountain of Life,  

The Call Committee has received the profiles for pastoral candidates from the district. Pastor McDaniels will be assisting with the next step, which involves reaching out to these candidates to determine if they are open to receiving a call.  Once we know which pastors are open to a call, the committee will begin reviewing the profiles and arrange for phone discussions with the candidates.  It is difficult to predict how long this part of the process will take.  We ask for continued prayers as God works to connect us with our next Pastor.  If you would like to view a diagram detailing the call process, you can find this through the e-newsletter, or view a hard copy in the call process binder located in the Narthex.

  God’s Peace, The Call Committee
