Report from the Pastor Nominating Committee
This report details the progress that the PNC has made since the Early April report. The following two documents have been approved by the Session: TPC pastoral job description and the Church Information Form (CIF).
The job description has been posted on several websites such as the ECO, EPC (Evangelical Presbyterian Church), Gordon Conwell Seminary, Fuller Theological Seminary, Reformed Theological Seminary, Facebook and TPC webpage.
The Terms of Call have been submitted to the Session for approval.
We have developed a Sermon Evaluation Rubric for listening to and judging applicants’ sermons.
Finally, we have received three inquiries and are reviewing them.
Thank you for your continued prayer and support during this crucial time.

If you enjoy singing and can carry a tune (buckets provided), we’d love to have you consider joining the choir. Or if you’d like to try your hand at handbells, we are considering a beginning handbell choir. If you play a musical instrument, please let me know, as well. Thank You!
