Pastoral Nominating Committee 2019
Westminister is currently searching for a new Pastor to lead the congregation. Updates and other documents from the Pastoral Nominating Committee will be published here.
Pastoral Committee members are: Keri Brinegar, Dr. Gerzain Chavez, Kari Heil, Libby Naranjo, and Donna Ormerod.
News from your PNC: After a review of the Book of Order and further consultation with the Santa Fe Presbytery Commission on Ministry, it is clear that congregations cannot call an interim pastor to be the next pastor. If you have any questions, feel free to talk to one of the PNC members.
Your Pastoral Nominating Committee (PNC) is now meeting and will update the congregation periodically on its progress over the next 11-18 months, based on this tentative timeline:
2-3 months to review, revise, update Mission Study (Completed)
1-2 months to produce the Church Information Form (CIF) (Completed)
1 month for Session and the Commission on Ministry (COM) to approve CIF (Completed)
2-3 months to advertise the position (In Process)
2-3 months to narrow the applicants to a “long list” (approx. 10 applicants) (In Process)
1-2 months to narrow the “long list” to a “short list” (approx. 3-5 applicants)
1-2 months to choose “the one,” have that person visit and preach, etc.
1-2 months for that person to arrive in Santa Fe.
