We've got some updates.
Here's the latest info about the Lead Pastor transition.
We are now in the phase of our search process where we have outlined some key characteristics and competencies for our ideal Lead Pastor candidate. The job has been posted, the application portal is open, and we are actively circulating our opening amongst our various networks and connections. Pray during this time for wisdom for our board in reviewing incoming applications and pray for the candidates, that all would have wisdom.
As always, we are committed to leading with transparency and that is why this page exists. We will continue to update this page with details about potential candidates, important events, and what you can expect on Sundays. If you have any questions, check out the FAQs or email [email protected]
For now, we've got some great guest teachers lined up.

How can I help in this process?
Your prayers are needed during this time for wisdom for the board and staff. Right now is also a great time to lean into community and serving if you haven’t already. Also, we would love to hear from you and get your feedback. Please take two minutes to complete this survey.
Does this change the vision of the church?
For now, the vision and mission of our church remain the same: to be a community of people being transformed by Jesus who generously love our neighbors and the next generation.
Who's in charge now?
The Board of Servant Leaders has appointed current Executive Pastor Kevin Rhineheimer to fill the role of Interim Lead Pastor during this time. The Board is in charge of leading the church through the search for a new Lead Pastor and Kevin will be leading the church and staff during this time.
I know someone who would be a great fit. How do I refer them?

How long will this process take?
We want to make sure we are following God's lead in this process to find the right person. While we don't have an exact timeline yet, we will update you regularly on this page and elsewhere as the timeline becomes more clear.
Who makes the final decision on who we hire?
The church body, volunteers, and staff are all vital parts of this process but the final decision on which candidate to hire will be made by the Board of Servant Leaders.
I've still got some questions.
