The time of pastoral transition in a congregation is one of the most significant times in the life of the church.

It brings on a reason to stop and evaluate the ministry and mission of the church community, while shifting the focus

to a future that is yet to be told. Given that it is a time of uncertainty; it can also be a time of high anxiety.

In consideration of the amazing ministry work over many years with Pastor Dave - it is also a time of grief.

We will need time to let go and pass on the masterpiece of his ministry with the community of TLC.


With that in mind, it is important for all of us to understand the Call Committee's role as spiritual as well as functional.

Please keep these people in your prayers as they take us into the next stage, following the work of the 

Strategic Planning Team and move into the role of seeking new/pertinent leadership for our congregation.
