We are continuing to keep our congregation up to date on our Pastoral Transition and search. Here's what's happening now.

This past Thursday your Leadership Team affirmed a search team and a search firm to help guide our process. The search team is made up of:

Terry Miller (chair) (Executive Team)
Ryan Cunningham (Executive Team)
Wade Weber (Executive Team)
Rick Ahrens (Executive Team)
Mary Sloan (elder)
Jamie Hicks (deacon)
Jeff Berkland (member at large)
Tina Vande Hoef (member at large)

Any questions or input can be directed at

The search firm that we are hiring is Slingshot Group ( Slingshot will assist us in finding the best candidates that are qualified and called to lead Good News in its next years. 

The search team has its first meeting this Wednesday and will begin the process of crafting a job description and scheduling a time for Slingshot to visit GNCC and get an understanding of culture, values, and vision. 

Be in prayer for the exciting days ahead, as we see what God is already up to and join Him in it.
