Hello, I am Loron Pellowe, Chair of the Board and serving on the Search Committee. On August 7, the Search Committee advised you that a candidate had progressed to the stage where we would be recommending him to the congregation to be our new Lead Pastor. We have invited him to preach on Sunday, September 18. A special congregational business meeting will immediately follow the service to allow the voting members of WPA to vote on the candidate as our new Lead Pastor.
Although we’re excited to tell you more about the candidate, out of regard for his current position at another church, we will be waiting until Sunday, September 11 to announce who he is and share some preliminary information about him. There will be an opportunity to meet the candidate and his family informally on the weekend of September 18. We appreciate your continued prayer support for the Committee, the candidate and his family, as we continue to move forward.
