The Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) has been working diligently each week through July and August. With the valuable input we received from the congregational surveys, the Church Information Form is complete and has been approved by the ECO Rivers of Life Presbytery Ministry Partnership Team. It will be submitted to the Synod and they will place it on the ECO website where pastors searching for a call can view it and respond to our PNC with their Personal Information Forms (PIFs) for consideration. The PNC is looking forward to receiving and reviewing each PIF as they become available.
