It is an exciting time as we prepare for the future, trust in God and make the most of the new campus launch.
As we invite friends & neighbors we know (and others we don’t know yet notice the building from the freeway), keep praying for many people to connect with Jesus and our church in the coming months!
From talking with other churches who launched their first campus, it is a fun, challenging and faith-stretching season. Their teams encouraged us to plan, prepare and then be ready to adapt as needed along the way.
With that in mind, Summit’s Board of Directors and I have been talking for the past year about when to seek our next Executive Pastor.
After praying about that timing, the board unanimously decided last week to authorize the search process. Here is a link to check out the position description:
Please join us in praying for the right candidate! We want to embrace the opportunities God will provide in the coming year.
If you know someone who might be a good fit, here’s how you can help:
- Share the position description and encourage them to submit a cover letter & resume email@example.com.
- If the person is a pastor or other rostered church worker in the Lutheran church, nominate them to our search team at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know why you think they would be a good fit.
The search team’s goal is to get this person on board in early 2020. That said, it’s always wise to make sure that we find the right person the Lord has prepared to join us in ministry (rather than settle to get someone in the position).
I appreciate your prayer for this search – and for all Summit leaders and staff as we courageously prepare to launch.
God has been incredibly faithful to our Summit family through the years! As we trusted in Him, the Lord has so often provided the right opportunities and the right people at just the right time.
Thanks for being a part of our church and this new adventure. As we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, I can’t wait to see all that He has planned!
