 Wanted:  Transitional Executive Presbyter

The Transitional Executive Presbyter search committee has been working hard this winter to begin the search for a new presbytery leader. The Presbytery Leadership Team proposed and the presbytery concurred that what will be helpful in our immediate future is to conduct a search for a transitional leader for a three year position. The search team has prayerfully and energetically jumped into this task of discernment for our new Transitional Executive Presbyter.

This week the presbytery's Ministry Information Form (MIF) was listed on the denomination-wide Church Leadership Connection. We expect to receive matches through that system, but are also relying on word of mouth around the denomination to help direct potential ruling elder and teaching elder candidates to our search. If you know of someone who you think should consider this position, we would appreciate your sharing this information with them. The Synod office is administering the search, so you can also refer anyone interested to Mary Kes (mkes@lakesandprairies.org) for additional information. 

The deadline for dossiers and supplemental questions to be received in the Synod office is February 16, 2015.
