Special Meeting of the Congregation

Members of Central Christian Church,

The Executive Board of Central Christian Church has called a Special Meeting of the Congregation for the purpose of considering the Board’s recommendation of a Settled Pastor, as presented by the Search and Call Committee. The meeting will be held in the Sanctuary on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.

The Search and Call Committee spent several months considering the congregation’s survey results, which indicated their desired qualifications for a Settled pastor, reviewing the candidates’ applications to match those qualifications, and interviewing candidates for the Settled Pastor position.

The Executive Board met on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 and voted unanimously to recommend approval of the candidate proposed by the Search and Call committee and to call this special meeting. Following opening comments by the Executive Board Moderator and the Chair of the Search and Call Committee, the Search and Call Chairperson will introduce the candidate to the congregation. The candidate will then preach a short sermon.

Attendees who are qualified voting members of the congregation will then be asked to vote by secret ballot whether we should extend a call to the candidate. The votes will be counted and the results announced at the meeting.

We invite and encourage all members of Central Christian to attend this important event for our future. We ask for your continued prayers as Central travels this journey.

Chuck Bentley, Jr. – Executive Board Moderator

Brenda Shoup – Elder Chair and Search and Call Chair
