Thank you for your patience as we continue to map out a faithful process for God to lead us to our next pastor. The search committee had two productive meetings last week: one with a committee participant from the First Baptist Church Austin pastoral search, and another with Rev. Dr. James Harrison, our regional ABCotS representative (American Baptist Churches of the South). In both meetings we heard inside perspectives of successful searches as well as obstacles during these searches. These meetings were energizing but also laden with new information our committee needs to process. We would like to share our insights with you as soon as we have fully analyzed this information.
We are not sure when we will begin reaching out to candidates, but it is important that we do not rush this part of the process so that we are prepared to communicate effectively and begin interviews when the time comes. We will share more details about the timeline as soon as possible. As always, we encourage you to send us your questions or comments at the e-mail address below.
Peace of Christ,
UBC Search Committee
