> TEACHING PASTOR SEARCH COMMITTEE (TPSC) REPORT #2 – The TPSC met last Sunday at 5PM lst Sunday evening for prayer and starting the planning process.
The Search Committee includes Wayne Lewis, Ann Kepaa, Geddy Kohler, Phoebe Christensen, Craig Fabbo, Christine Mckeller, and Matt DuPlessie, plus the deacons and the elders.
After introductions, the Committee selected Matt DuPlessie to lead them through the 20+-step search/selection process, beginning with selection of co-moderators for the meetings: Matt, and Art Warner. The TPSC then chose Phoebe Christensen and Ann Kepaa as Recording Secretaries.
The Committee then decided how decisions will be made (majority of those TPSC members attending), and appointing teams to review the Job Description, draft the job posting, identify posting media, and developing a compensation plan.
All meetings are open to anyone and everyone who is interested in the conversations, discussions, and decisions around identifying and onboarding the next Teaching Pastor at GNBC. All are welcome. All are invited to pray for God-given, Spirit-powered discernment and wisdom in this project together.
Notes will be published following all meetings and posted on the Bulletin Board outside the Copy Room in the lower hallway.
The next meeting of the full TPSC is Tuesday, May 14th at 6:30PM, then on Sunday, May 19th at 7PM.

“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.” – Max Lucado
