PNC Updates

The Pastor Nominating Committee is meeting regularly and will provide monthly updates

and prayer requests on this page. 

  • APRIL, 2019

    The Vanderbloemen Search Group has received more than 50 applications for the position of Senior Pastor at CPC.  The Pastoral Nominating Committee (PNC) is currently in the process of reviewing and interviewing the top group of candidates.  This process takes a great deal of time, because it includes reviewing resumes, reading blogs, and listening to numerous sermons.  But God is in control of the process and the PNC is now carefully considering and praying through all of the information.  The next steps will involve speaking with the candidates to better understand whether or not they will be a good fit for CPC.  To protect the confidentiality of the candidates the PNC is unable to release names or other information.  Please continue to pray for the church, the PNC, the prospective candidates, and Pastors Greg and Marsha as we continue down God’s path for our church.

    Pray for PNC members to seek God’s wisdom as they review resumes and begin to interview potential pastoral candidates.

  • MARCH, 2019

    The PNC met with staff from Vanderbloemen for our “Mid-Point” meeting.  Vanderbloemen shared they are continuing to talk with potential candidates and collect information.  Candidates may be presented to the PNC sometime in early spring.  The PNC is also continuing to keep staff from the EPC updated regarding the process.

    Pray that the posting of the job for our future Senior Pastor will touch the right candidate that our LORD has chosen.

  • February, 2019

    On Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 11:00AM, we will be having a Fasting Prayer Time for CPC.  This time of prayer and worship will be held in the sanctuary.  We invite all to come and prayer together!  Fasting is optional, but if you are able, skip breakfast as you prepare for a time of prayer.

  • January, 2019

    The Pastor Nominating Committee continued to meet through the first few weeks of December.  The committee was praying and working together to complete the necessary information for Vanderbloemen and the EPC.  In mid December, the Committee received final approval of the official Church Information Form from Session.  This document along with other background details, information, photos, and a video were submitted to Vanderbloemen and the EPC.  Vanderbloemen has posted the position and is actively working on the recruitment.  The EPC is also continuing to work with CPC to post the position.  The committee has been fasting and praying in January as we wait to hear back from Vanderbloemen with prospective candidates.

  • December, 2018

    We have prayerfully been working with Vanderbloemen and the EPC on building a search profile.  We have submitted various documents and needed information.  Vanderbloemen and the EPC continue to be in prayer with us through the process.

    We have contracted with the Vanderbloemen Search Group to assist with the process.  We are also working with our denomination (EPC) for guidance.

    We are requesting prayers from all CPC brothers and sisters. Prayer is the most important part during this search. It is vital that we keep Christ at the center.
