Associate Pastor Call
Beautiful Savior is in the process of calling an associate pastor. Here is a summary of the process to date:
Our Senior Pastor, Ryan Brons, presented a focused plan for our church on Vision Sunday in November of 2016 which included the calling of a fourth pastor.
The Voter’s Assembly approved the position and for the Mission Leadership Council (MLC) to form a call committee (Nov. 20th, 2016).
The call committee was established in January 2017.
A job description for the associate pastor position based on the church’s mission, vision, and future plan were approved by the Mission Leadership Council (MLC) and Senior Pastor, Ryan Brons.
The call committee began the call process in late January 2017 and with the help of the congregation and the Nebraska District had 17 candidates to consider and review. Five candidates were selected to interview, which began in June of 2017.
The process ended just a couple of weeks later with all five candidates either accepting other calls or feeling called to remain in their current ministry.
After prayerful contemplation and discussion, the job description for the fourth pastor was revised and presented to MLC on July 11th. The MLC approved the job description changes which included changing the level of experience required, the addition of leading small group ministry, and adjustments to the multi-site requirement.
The call committee reviewed the nominations for candidates from the congregation on Wednesday, August 9th. The list of candidates was forwarded on to the Nebraska District. In the next few weeks, the Nebraska District will send the committee additional information on our candidates and suggest additional qualified candidates for the call committee to review.
The call committee received a list of 23 candidates from the Nebraska District and met to review and narrow that list.
The call committee will be looking into each candidate on that list in more depth and meet on Wednesday, October 11th to determine which candidates to contact for interviews. Please continue to pray that God provides us with wisdom to follow the Holy Spirit’s leading in this Divine Call.
