We ‘lost’ our ‘settled’ minister of 9 years in 2012. Then we had an ‘interim‘ minister of 2 years to carry us through a ministerial search. Then our Search Committee collapsed. Currently we have a 4-year ‘developmental’ minister contracted from junes 2014 to 2018. It’s now august 2017 – 10 months to go til the end of the contract. An inconvenient truth: developmentally, we ain’t goin’ no-where. Presuming that we want another ‘settled’ minister to come here & live for a while with us, we need our Board members to start the new-minister search process now & to appoint a Search Committee.
