Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Recently, my church’s pastor resigned, putting us into the position of having to search for a new pastor to lead the church. A pulpit committee has been formed, and it is following the pattern of the Tennessee Baptist group that recommends having a Pray Chairman. Prayer is an important part of the duties of the Pulpit Search Committee, and the Prayer Chairman is responsible for keeping prayer at the forefront, and also before the Church Congregation.
Currently I am serving in that capacity on my Church’s pulpit search committee. I would like to know if others have seen a similar position on other Pulpit Search Committees, and if so, how has such a position helped in the selection of a Pastoral Candidate?
I would appreciate hearing from the experience of others who have worked with Pastoral Search Committees.
