Pastoral Transition

Update: April 17

BHBC Church Family,

The search committee has met for the first time.  This first meeting included a dinner and prayer time with committee members spouses, Pastor Mike and Betty Friday evening, 4/12, and a four-hour meeting of the committee and advisors on Saturday, 4/13.

The search committee members have dedicated themselves to prayer and to listening to the leadership of the Holy Spirit.  We continue to seek the prayers of the church.  Initial work has started with the focus on developing a senior pastor profile that will be used throughout the search process.  The senior pastor profile will express the qualifications, attributes, skills and abilities preferred to lead our church into the future.  The committee will use the biblical requirements for elders and pastors, input we are receiving from the church through the survey, and information about the health and projected future of the church to develop this profile.  Please be in prayer for God's guidance, wisdom and discernment.

The committee is also dedicated to keep the church family informed about the process.  We will continue to update the committee’s work right here on this Webpage, periodically providing reports and asking for prayer focused on specific steps and needs of the committee.  Answers to some frequently asked questions are updated and posted here now and will continue to be updated over time.  We encourage you to give us input by way of the church-wide survey.

More than 400 responses have already been received. The committee has a summary of responses which are being used in developing the pastor profile.
