Senior Pastor Search Team Updates and Prayer Requests

PST logoThe Search Team is excited to share the progress being made regarding filling the position of Senior Pastor.  

 

The official job description for our Senior Pastor position was posted on the SBCV website on February 25, 2018 in addition to having the position listed under employment on the OGBC webpage. 

 

This area will include news, prayer requests and other information as we move along in the search process for our Senior Pastor, so be sure to check back updates.

 

Honestly, we don’t know what to expect as we move forward with this God size task before us.    We do know that the Lord will lead us. We do know that the Lord has this man picked already and while we are searching, that the Lord is readying that man to come to us.    Resumes and Profiles are currently being prayerfully reviewed and considered by the Search team to prepare for the next phase of the search process.  This process will include contacting applicants and scheduling interviews etc.  We know that we are being led by the Lord through each step to allow for His will to be done in bringing to OGBC the Senior Pastor that is meant to lead our congregation.

 

It is our humble request that you begin or continue to pray with us for the men who submit resumes and feel God’s call to reach out to OGBC, that their heart and mind is the will of God and that He is preparing them for the task he sets before them regarding our church and its people.

 

We request that you pray for the Search Team daily in the following manner

 

~ that the Search Team would earnestly seek God as we read through resumes and profiles.   “Those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.”  Psalm 34:10

 

~ that God’s desires would become our desires, and His ideas, our ideas.  We want to have His eyes and heart as we look over resumes and profiles.

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.”  John 16:13

 

~ that He would lead us (the Search Team, the church & Leadership team) to be in agreement with each other as we move toward the new Senior Pastor, God has for us.

“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and once voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  Romans 15:5-6

 

~ that we would have wisdom from heaven.

“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.”  James 3:17
