The Board of Elders are pleased to announce that we have a strong candidate for the Lead Pastor position, and have scheduled him to come for a public visit on Sunday, September 12th. His name is Dr. Jeremy Rios. Information about his background, experience, sermons and writings is included below in a pdf.
As a reminder, inviting someone to candidate is one more step in the process--candidating does not necessarily mean that a call, to be our lead pastor will be issued, or that a call will be accepted. Candidating is a way to gather more information about the person and to gain a stronger sense of whether they are a good fit for our church. It is also an opportunity to gauge the response of the church to the candidate. We would like to extend an open invitation to our entire community to meet Jeremy and his wife, Liesel.
Jeremy will preach at both 9:00 & 11:00 am services on Sunday, September 12th. In order to accomodate more people, the main floor will not have limited seating capacity (although the balcony will continute to be mask only and 2 m spacing). In addition, on Sunday evening at 6:30 pm we will be hosting an informal “get-to-know you" time where Jeremy will share more of his life story followed by a question and answer time, and with coffee and dessert to follow. If you are unable to attend in person, you can join in via Zoom. We hope you will be able to hear and meet Jeremy and Liesel, and look forward to hearing your thoughts and input for the Board after their visit. Please pray for Jeremy and his family as they prepare for this visit, and pray for the Board of Elders as we continue this process.
