SEARCH FOR A NEW PASTOR
by Mike Bradley, Ruling Elder
The Session and Church of the Resurrection have some hard work (and opportunities) in front of us to find a new pastor. The process for selecting, electing, and installing a pastor within the PCA is outlined in the Book of Church Order, chapters 20-23. It is a detailed and thorough process. We are working with the Presbytery and getting questions answered  about next steps. The Session is meeting on a weekly basis to ensure we have as smooth a transition as possible. It is expected that we will have a “pulpit committee” to assist the Session in the interview process. There will be a number of congregational meetings also. It is important to attend these meetings as we need one-quarter of our registered members present to have a quorum and conduct
business.
This is the time for members and friends of COR to unite and give thanks to God in all his glory. He will be with us on this adventure to select a new Pastor for His church. Pastor Bob told the congregation last week that he believed “the Church of the Resurrection is going to be fine and that our best times are ahead of us.” The
Session believes that also!
I have had the opportunity to attend the Arizona Presbytery meetings on several occasions now. There are many great pastors out there who are truly men of God and have the gift of preaching as well as ministering to the flock. I am convinced that God is going to send us the right pastor. If during this process you have questions or
need information, ask an Elder. We will pass on what we know at this point. We do know that until we select a new pastor, the Presbytery will be providing us with temporary pastors to preach on most Sundays.
Let us not forget… God has the plan; let us put our trust in him and he will send us the right pastor for His church.
