Sharon and Search Guides are engaged with three active pastoral searches. Sharon has also been in touch with five additional congregations in various stages of leadership transitions.

In September Sharon communicated with 15 potential applicants for ministry positions.

Sharon will lead an ordination service for Ben Bouwman at Walnut Hill Mennonite on October 27.

Two years ago, Volunteer Search Guides were trained to offer support to congregations during pastoral searches. Sharon resources the Search Guides as they walk with Search Committees and scheduled a refresher meeting with them for November 19.
