Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) Update
The Church Information Form (CIF) has been posted on the Presbyterian USA website, and we received 25 matching Personal Information Forms (PIFs) to our criteria. The PNC met on September 25 to review these matching applicants and seven other applications received via mail or email. It was decided to request an audio or video tape of a sermon from the aforementioned seven to get a better idea of their speaking skills. The committee will reconvene on October 4 to continue reviewing the applications.
