The Senior Minister Search Committee met yesterday after worship to finalize plans for January 15th when our consultant, Bill Wilson from Center for Healthy Churches, joins us for a presentation during the Bible Study hour and preaches at the 11:00 am worship service.  Dr. Wilson was a pastor for many years and has a wealth of knowledge about moderate Baptist churches and an amazing number of contacts in the Baptist community.

We continue a nationwide search for our next minister.  The best candidates will likely be solicited rather than coming to us through an ad.  So again, if you know someone you think would be perfect for the job, please pass the name and a contact information to anyone on the search committee.

Below are the links to several articles sent to us by Bill Wilson that might be of interest to the congregation. We hope that you will find them helpful.
