The Gordonsville Herald
Volume XXXVVVIII, Issue 3 March 1, 2023
Dear Gordonsville Baptist Church Family,
This month you should be receiving the Pastor Search Committee survey. Please take the time to thoughtfully and prayerfully answer each question. We will be reviewing the data that will allow us to have a concept of the type of pastor you want to lead our church forward.
During the transition, it’s important to recognize that this can create emotions like anxiety, grief, shock, or anticipation of change. We should be patient with each other, and acknowledge, respect, support, help, and reassure each other. By acknowledging and supporting one other, we can move forward and be ready to embrace a new leader, and see a new future on the horizon.
So finally, in preparation for our future, please be praying for
--The Pastor Search Committe
That God gives them wisdom, trust, respect, and unity.
--Our Potential Candidate
That God speaks to them and leads them to a new church and ministry.
--Our Church to Be Read
Pray that God gets us ready for our new Pastor, the future we will have together, and
that God will discern the right match.
Please ensure your responses to the survey are completed electronically or delivered in person before March 19. If you have any questions or problems, accessing or completing the survey, please reach out to one of the committee members.
Thank you for your continued prayers,
Gordonsville Baptist Church Pastor Search Committee
