SENIOR PASTOR SEARCH
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see."
~ Hebrews 11:1 ~
Updated May 4, 2023
In the search for a Senior Pastor, the Search Committee is grounded in faith as illustrated in Hebrews, Chapter 11.
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.
