  • As we serve the Lord let us be ready, yet remain humble and open to His direction, for "A man's mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." (Prov. 16:9) Lord, keep us alert to Your guidance and always faithful to the tasks You have given us.

Purpose and Authority of the Senior Pastor Search Committee

The role of pastor in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church is that of a Teaching Elder called to serve a local church by the congregation. Elected by and responsible to the congregation, the Senior Pastor Search Committee is tasked with prayerfully seeking and nominating a candidate for the position of senior pastor. Following a diligent search and review process, and with concurrence of the Presbytery, a nominee for senior pastor of New Hope Presbyterian Church will be presented to the congregation for acceptance.
