Leadership Update – March 19, 2017
Thank you church for your prayers regarding our search for a Lead Pastor! This week the ELT just received an additional 39 resumes to review. From the original 76 received, about 14 of them have advanced to the questionnaire stage. Once the questionnaires are returned and evaluated, the ones who continue on will begin the interview stage. Each step requires much wisdom and discernment, so please keep up your prayers for the ELT.

Leadership Update – March 5, 2017
After reviewing more than 75 resumes submitted for the lead pastor position, the ELT has greatly narrowed the potential candidates. In the meantime 25 additional resumes have been received and CBC’s leadership is diligently assessing each one submitted. Your continued support and prayer for wisdom is appreciated more than you know.

The leadership of CBC is confident and encouraged about the ministry and direction CBC is going and deeply thankful for your continued support and faithfulness to ministry.

Leadership Update – February 15, 2017
Thank you to all who took the time to provide your feedback through the survey we promoted, as well as other conversations.  You’ve heard the old adage, “You can please some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time.”  I don’t know if the origin of that came from the church, but we all know it would fit!  And, as you can surely appreciate, “pleasing all of the people all of the time” isn’t really the ultimate goal of discerning leadership.  However, it is also true that as we strive to see that our flock is being shepherded best, we are grateful for opportunities to learn what’s on the hearts and minds of our people.
Regarding our Lead Pastor vacancy, we have lined out a very thorough process for our search, and at present we are simply in the stage of receiving resumes and contacts, with the steps of vetting coming next.  The pace began as a slower one, but we anticipate it picking up steam from here.  We trust the Lord, and need His help in this process.  Keep the prayers going!
