FINDING A NEW PERMANENT PASTOR FOR FREMONT BAPTIST CHURCH
Finding a new minister can take some time. We now have our second Interim minister who will serve us through March 2020. Pastor Jeff is willing to help us longer, and his contract will be extended. Pastor Jeff Barker is our Interim minister and he signed on in October 2019. We are very grateful for his leadership and his bible study and Inquirer's classes. Thank you Pastor Jeff! Pastor Search Committee: Lynn Baranska, Judie Clarridge, Kathy Huber, Leland Ross, Marc Walter, and Jan Winterroth. Please talk to any one of us with any questions and feedback you have. We are now ready to take over and continue the process and results that the Transition team provided for us. EBA Executive Minister, Rev. Doug Avilesbernal is guiding us through this process. We have just drafted the Church Profile, needed for prospective pastors to look over to see if they are a fit. The Search Committee's job will be completing the final reflections. Then will start searching though the names of available Pastors and sort through their resumes, arrange to meet them, determining which are looking for the same ideas that Fremont Baptist wants in a Pastor. They will interview the candidates, arrange meetings, asking candidates to speak on a Sunday so everyone can hear them and for the committee to get feedback from members and attendees. Next will be the process of wading through qualified candidates to call our next permanent Pastor. The next Pastor will need to have another job as well. The position is only part time because of our current size and needs. The Moderator is in charge of all staff employment and will sign a Permanent Pastor agreement after the membership has approved a candidate.
