Progress is continuing to be made and it is getting exciting. Our job ad was posted through the last week of January. Many new candidates came into the Converge system with specific interest in Calvary (How exciting!). Our conference is now matching the candidates with the established requirements (from the surveys completed by all of you). They will then contact the top candidates that best match our needs. We should receive this final list of candidates by Friday, Feb 12. We will then review each candidate’s material and watch samples of their sermons.
The Search Team will then conduct Zoom interviews with each candidate. We will then identify the top candidates for a second round of more in-depth interviews. The top candidate will then come to our church for a review and for everyone to meet and hear a sermon from him. We will then vote on this candidate. We will make sure everyone knows when this will happen. Most likely it will be end of March/first part of April.
Continue praying for all candidates, the converge conference to have wisdom as they review and interview the candidates, the Search Team to hear and know who God wants to lead our church family, and our church to remain strong through this process.
