  • Who should serve on the PNC?

    St. Andrew's Nominating Team is collecting  recommendations and self-nominations for members willing to add their unique voice and perspective to a Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC). Submit your suggestions by Feb. 18 to Tim Benson (tbenson@cca.k12.ia.us) or Becka Simpson (b.yucuis@gmail.com).

     

  • In his January column for The Messenger, St. Andrew's interim pastor explains how St. Andrew's Nominating Team is assembly a list of 7 or 9 congregational members to serve on a Pastor Nominating Committee. The membership of that committee will need to be approved in a congregational meeting within the next few weeks.

  • As part of the Adult Education hour between worship services, St. Andrew's interim senior pastor explains the process for forming a Pastor Nominating Committee and beginning the search for the congregation's next pastor.
