Lead Pastor Announcement
Over the past weeks the Lead Pastor Search Team met several more times to discuss two great candidates that were before us. The team considered all the information provided by NL Moore & Associates, individual interactions, personal references for each man, and written feedback provided from those who participated in the weekend visits.
After prayerfully reflecting on all this information and assessing each potential candidate’s unique giftings and fit with Paseo’s great future, the team arrived at a consensus.
Last week the Search Team presented our recommended lead pastor candidate and the rationale behind our conclusion to the Elders. The Search Team’s recommendation was unanimously accepted!
The candidate the Search Team recommended to be Paseo del Rey’s Lead Pastor is Shelton Markham.
Now that the Elders have voted to accept Shelton as our Lead Pastor candidate, he will soon be joining us for a week of candidating. Shelton, his wife Amy and their children are planning to visit and interact with us the week of August 13 through August 19, 2018.
The plan is for Shelton to meet with small groups in our church family throughout the week, followed by preaching at our morning worship services on Sunday, August 19, 10:35 a.m. (one service only). Following his weeklong visit with us and the conclusion of the Sunday worship services, the congregation will be asked to vote to confirm the candidate selected by our Search Team and recommended by the Elders. Our hope is that, following this, he would be able to begin his ministry with us a short time later.
More information will be provided regarding opportunities to interact with Shelton and Amy and their family during their upcoming visit.
We are so thankful for God’s kindness to us in the past and look forward to His great plans for Paseo into the future!
