PNC Update

The PNC is working diligently to find Westfield’s next called pastor. We thank you for your continuing prayers, not only for us, but for our next pastor, whomever God may be calling. Times of discernment and change can be a challenge for all parties involved.  That is why we need your prayers as our work continues. Our PNC members are: Keith Breuer, Pat Byers, Sonja Gettemy, Cyndee Patton, Ken Shiderly, Jr., Andy Shillingburg, Delta Stoner, Jill Trotter, Sam Vastano.

Church Information Form is Complete

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.

Pastor Nominating Committee has Begun

The work of the congregation’s Pastor Nominating Committee has begun. Our first task is creating the Church Information Form. This is a document that is posted on ECO’s website and the Westfield Website.  Here pastors looking for a call can find out about us – our congregation, our community, our ministries, and our missions. As we create this document, we will need feedback from you, so look for a questionnaire in the Sunday worship bulletin in the coming weeks. This questionnaire will give us some information about what you want in the next pastor for Westfield Presbyterian Church.
