CALL COMMITTEE UPDATE
The call committee met on the evening of January 26 with Pastor Craig Pederson. He provided the committee with an update on the candidate selection process. He reassured the committee that the synod has been researching candidates, talking with other synods about possible candidates and seeking out individuals that would make a good fit for Redeemer. He said that a typical congregation receives between four to six candidates for interviewing. The process may feel like it's taking awhile, but Pastor Pederson reminded us that the process can take anywhere from 9- 18 months.While we all hope the process doesn't take that long, we were reminded that the call committee began meeting in June 2020. The call committee will continue to work with Pastor Pederson to seek out qualified candidates. We are hopeful that we will be able to start interviewing mid to end of February.
In the interim we are drafting interview questions and reviewing the Ministry Site Profile in order to make sure the candidates are representative of a pastor that the congregation is seeking.
