Pastoral search is underway!
Pastoral search update
We reviewed our applicants and have identified 5 candidates to be interviewed by the elders. We are not accepting new applications. The elders have also decided to pause our pastoral search process at this time. Our candidate finalists are all in leadership positions that require their best efforts for their current organizations during the Covd19 pandemic, and we also need to have our full attention on shepherding EBC during this time. Our finalists have been contacted, and each one appreciated our approach of pausing the process at this time. Every finalist expressed gratitude and interest in interviewing with our elders when this pandemic situation allows. We hope that will come sooner rather than later. In the meantime, we will continue to maintain communication with our candidate finalists.
Pastor Tim has announced his desire to seek a new season of ministry, and the church has approved Pastor Ron to serve as our next Senior Pastor. Pastor Tim and Pastor Ron will remain in their current positions until a new Associate Pastor is called. The position is advertised on several websites including our denomination’s monthly newsletter (The Foresee) and ChurchStaffing. Pray for God to direct us to His man for this position, and please spread the word.
The elders will review the applications as they are received. The full board will be consulted throughout the process, and the final candidate must be approved by congregational vote. We aim to keep the congregation informed as the process continues.
Candidates may apply by submitting a cover letter and résumé to the church office at email@example.com or via postal mail at 2891 5th Ave W, Dickinson ND 58601.
