DPNC COMMITTEE UPDATE (11-28-15)
Designated Pastor Nominating Committee Update In October, the Mission Information Form (MIF) for Donegal Church was finalized by the DPNC and approved by the Session and the Presbytery of Donegal. The MIF gives information to pastors who are searching for their next call. It gives information about our church and where we are headed on our journey in God’s kingdom. After a few delays due to electronic submission problems, our MIF was placed on the Church Leadership Connection database (run by the PCUSA) in mid-November and our opening was available for pastors to find. Inside of a week, we received a number of Pastor Information Forms (PIFs) from pastors wanting to apply. The DPNC now starts the process of reviewing PIFs and finding out more about those pastors who might be a match for our church. Unlike the first part of our process – developing the MIF – this section of the process is not one that the DPNC can share much information about. This is due to confidentiality reasons (would you want your boss to know that you’re looking for a new job?). The DPNC will provide as much information as possible from here on, such as how many candidates have applied, but there likely won’t be as many updates to the congregation as before. Please keep the DPNC in your prayers as we move into this next phase of the search process.
