Your Pastor Search Team
Hello Ironbridge family. Your Pastor Search Team is off to a great start! We have already met three times and are busy at work. Thank you for entrusting us to seek and find our next lead Pastor at Ironbridge. The most important thing we do is seek God’s direction through His word and prayer. We know that God is already at work preparing our next Pastor to lead Ironbridge. He is giving us time to be ready to receive Him. This man will be our shepherd; he will lead us, and we will recognize his voice.
There will be special times and opportunities to pray for our team during the month of May. In preparation, we ask that you read Ephesians 4:1-16 and pray through this wonderful passage of scripture.
Anytime you have a question or insight that you want to share with our team, please email us at email@example.com. We will review and pray through your words and if a response is called for, you will hear back from us. We will be regularly updating the Leadership Team and Deacons on our progress and during our churchwide ministry conferences.
Jon Loftis – Chairperson, Rachel Adcock, Victoria Bates, Sarah Cochran, Angela Compton, Paul Repak, Rhea Shelton, Greg Sweeney & Tamara Tatum
July BridgeBlast Update
Over the last two months your Pastor Search Team has been seeking, listening, and praying for God to connect and prepare Ironbridge for our next pastor. The month of May was a great season for focused prayer. God is speaking and at work in Ironbridge. Last week, we posted the position for our lead Pastor. We are having a tremendous response. God has much work for Ironbridge to do in our community and our world… “the harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few”.
As part of the process, we will be asking you for two things. 1) Complete an anonymous survey in mid-July. The purpose of the survey is to share with our church demographics with prospective candidates: age, gender, family makeup, church engagement, leadership roles, etc.… 2) Pray and ask God to lead us to His chosen pastor for Ironbridge.
If you would like to make a referral please personally invite and encourage the pastor to prayerfully consider if God is leading him to apply and if so email us firstname.lastname@example.org. Ask them to let us know that you referred him to us. There is time for prayer, listening, and applying. We will be receiving resumes until September 10th.
God bless you church!
