By Duane Yoder, member of MLT and IMMC Treasurer
This month MLT has been focused on the Conference Pastor Job Description. We conducted a survey to evaluate the essential functions and competencies that are important for the position. We are also gathering information from the Area Councils to broaden the perspective of the needs and concerns related to the position and qualities to look for in individuals that might apply.
The Conference Pastor’s role has evolved through the changing times of IMMC. The focus is on current realities in our conference and the vision for intercultural competency that is needed for the future. Through prayer and discernment, we are committed to defining the position and identifying the qualities of the person needed to fill that position.
The first step to forming a search committee is the selection of a chairperson. The chairperson will then assist in the process of selecting search committee members. We are working towards the goal of posting the position and receiving applications in December 2020.
We appreciate your prayers, counsel, and assistance as we go through the process of finding the next Conference Pastor.
