Call Committee Update

The Mount Olivet senior pastor call committee has been meeting nearly weekly all summer. The committee has spent a considerable amount of time researching a list of prospective candidates. The list of possible candidates was developed by the call committee in researching large congregations and reaching out to a wide variety of persons within the ELCA for recommendations, in addition to receiving candidate names from members of our congregation. The committee has conducted a number of initial interviews with candidates and that process continues as we match candidates with our senior pastor profile.

While it would be desirable to provide a timeline for completion of our search, the process of identifying and interviewing candidates takes time in order to be thorough in finding the best person to serve Mount Olivet. Thank you for your patience, and most importantly, thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
