Pulpit Committee

At the end of October 2021, Pastor Jason Wakefield shared with the congregation of Christ Presbyterian Church (CPC) his plans to resign effective January 31, 2022. In November 2021, the Session opened nominations for members to serve on a pulpit committee to search for our next pastor. In December 2021, the pulpit committee was elected by the congregation, and in January 2022, the pulpit committee began working together in earnest to prepare to search for CPC’s next pastor.

Church and Pastor Profile

The Church and Pastor Profile describes our congregation and our hopes for our next pastor. It was put together by CPC’s pulpit committee using input from our congregational survey and the Session. The profile will help candidates learn about CPC and understand who we are as a church, and it will help the pulpit committee determine if a candidate is a good fit for CPC.

Nominations & Applications

Coming soon!

Prayer Opportunities

At the beginning of each month, we’ll share prayer requests and scripture readings. View the current month or the archive (starting in February 2022). In addition, we invite you to join us for prayer at these times:

  • Sundays before the worship service (at approximately 10:15 a.m.) in the crying room
  • Wednesdays at noon online (Zoom meeting link, Meeting ID: 921 8059 6799, Passcode: 473866)

Process

We divided our process for finding a new pastor into the following phases, which you can also see represented in the chart: Preparation, Search Round 1, Search Round 2 (if needed), and Call. 

Chart showing phases of pastor search

Each month, we’ll provide a short update during the worship service, with an email summary for members who were unable to attend. Each quarter (approximately), we’ll hold an informational meeting after the worship service to provide more substantial updates and answer questions.
