Transition Team Update: June 7, 2020
The Transition Team is hard at work planning for Greg’s pastoral transition. The team has met twice with the Executive Presbyter, Stated Clerk, and Committee on Ministries representative from Donegal Presbytery, the first meeting with Session and the second with just the Transition Team. These meetings provided information on the transition process and provided an opportunity to ask clarifying questions.
The Transition Team is currently in the planning phase and will be able to communicate an overall timeline in the near future.
What has been done to date:
Planning to celebrate Greg’s ministry is underway
Planning to round out the Sunday preaching schedule is underway
Session voted to approve the Transition Team as the Interim Pastor Search Committee. A job description for an interim pastor has been drafted.
Transition Team Members are Joe Battavio, Kathy Bird, P.J. Dakes, Jeff Gross, Elizabeth Guman, and Kathy Westhafer.
