search committee update - april 2021

March was an exciting month for the Search Committee as we reached another milestone (see updated chart). During the month, we entered into negotiations with the Candidate that we are confident will best serve the needs of First Christian Church – Edwardsville. At the board meeting on March 21, 2021, the Search Committee presented the Candidate for Settled Minister via video and through an information document to the board and elders. The Search Committee recommended the Candidate to the board. We are pleased to announce that the board unanimously approved the recommended Candidate. Based on that board approval, the board will be presenting the Candidate to the congregation at the congregational meeting that has been scheduled for Sunday, April 11, 2021. The congregational meeting will follow a combined worship service that day. If the congregation approves the candidate, we will be issuing a letter of call to the Candidate following the meeting. Prior to the congregational meeting, on Saturday, April 10, we will be hosting several meet and greet sessions (following COVID protocols) with the recommended Candidate. More details of the meet and greet sessions will be sent out via constant contact. The Search Committee would like to thank the congregation for putting their trust in us for this very important task. Throughout the process, we have been diligent and prayerful in our deliberations. We are pleased to present an outstanding Candidate for your approval.
