St. Mark Lutheran Church


Senior Pastor Call Process

A Call Committee consisting of the St. Mark Board of Elders and additional members of the congregation has been formed to begin the process of identifying candidates to fill the pastoral vacancy.  We need your help in two very important ways.

Most importantly, we ask for your prayers that the Lord would guide our congregation, Call Committee, district staff, and pastoral candidates throughout the call process.

We also ask you to complete a short Congregational Self-Study survey.  The information gathered through this survey will assist us as we work with the district staff to identify and evaluate candidates for the senior pastor position.  Copies of the survey are available in your mailbox in the Narthex, and additional copies can be obtained on the St. Mark website or by contacting the church office.

All Communicant members are encouraged to complete the survey.  Please return completed surveys to the marked boxes in the Narthex or church office by Sunday, December 11, 2011.

Thank you for your prayers and assistance throughout this process.  We encourage you to contact any member of the Call Committee with questions, concerns, or names of potential pastoral candidates.

The Committee will provide updates in Notes & News and on the website as we have news to share.  There will not likely be new information each week, especially as we begin the call process.
