Lead Pastor Search

November 2023

After 11 years of faithful service to our church, Jeff Fritsche has moved on to follow a new calling to pastor a church in Colorado. We are grateful for everything he and his family gave to our church, and we are praying for them and their new ministry.

Now we are entering into a search process to discern who God might call to be our next Lead Pastor. We have engaged with a leading ministry search firm to help us. The process could take 8-12 months or more, but the most important thing is to follow the wisdom and leading of God to have the right man leading this wonderful church into the next season.

We will continue to update this page and share updated information on the weekly church emails, but in the mean time, please join us in prayer for God’s sovereign hand to guide this process.

Update: January 2024

Our search process is on schedule for us to have pre-vetted candidates presented from our search firm by the end of January. At that point, our search committee will begin interviewing these candidates. The search committee is comprised of our elders plus six Partners:

Melissa Burch
Ryan Collier
Josiah Holland
Andi Jamison
Terri Smith
Ken Smuland
