Pastor Search Committee Update | First Baptist Church

June 25, 2021

The Search Committee has reviewed the many resumes that we received and narrowed them to a short list of candidates.  We completed the initial round of virtual interviews on those candidates last week.  We are very thankful for this group of men and think highly of each!  Over the next several weeks, we will complete in-depth interviews on a few candidates as we continue to narrow our list.  Please pray for us as we move forward in discerning who the Lord has planned for Pittsboro Baptist Church.  Please also be looking for specific church-wide prayer guides and information on prayer meetings as we undertake these next steps; we covet your prayers!  

To God be the glory,

The pastor search continues at a brisk pace and is going extremely well. The resume submission window has closed, and the Committee has narrowed the field to a short list of candidates. We are relying upon God’s direction as we move forward with the interview process.  This is a difficult phase, and we ask your continued prayers for discernment and wisdom in the coming weeks.  

To God be the glory,

Things are going very well with the pastor search!  Our resume acceptance period started on April 1 and goes through May 15, and we have been receiving and reviewing many very exciting and promising resumes.  It is an arduous process as we sort through and prayerfully consider each one, so we desperately need your continued prayers.  We released the 40 Days of Prayer on Easter Sunday; hard copies of the entire document are still available throughout the church.  Please also check your email for the daily prayer that is sent out via Realm.  

This is an exciting time in the life of our church, and again, we ask that you would join us in prayer as we move forward into the next phases of narrowing our lists to the top candidates and beginning the interview process. 

Thank you so much.
