Pastor Search Update

The Christian Index, “the news source for 1.4 million Georgia Baptists,” posted an article today highlighting our search for the next Lead Pastor at Ingleside.

I encourage you to read the article (find it here) and pass it along to those who might be of assistance in our search.

In addition, here’s the latest update posted on our church website by our Pastor Search Committee:

“The Pastor Search Committee (PSC) committed the month of August to researching, discussing, crafting, and finalizing our Lead Pastor Profile. At the same time, we are preparing to accept resumes from prospective candidates. To receive resumes, a dedicated Ingleside Lead Pastor Application webpage was created. Through this page, interested individuals can view the pastor profile, apply for the Lead Pastor position, view a video presentation, and browse images of recent campus events. We are excited to begin receiving resumes (through the end of October).

Looking forward, the PSC intends to uphold the characteristics that have emerged from engaging the Ingleside staff, the Overseers, and church members in recent focus groups.

Throughout these discussions and exercises, these five traits emerged as the most significant in our search for a Lead Pastor:

  • Chief Shepherd
  • Lead Teaching Pastor
  • The Leader
  • Chief Explorer and Future Thinker
  • Voice of Moral Concern

These traits will be a primary focus as we interview Lead Pastor candidates.

As a united church family, we embark on this journey together to discern the individual the Lord has prepared for us. Let us pray together in seeking the glory of God and abiding in His love, as guided by John 15:8-9.”

I hope you are praying daily for the members of the PSC – Vicki Bass, Alex Correa, Ben Hinson, Robby Jones, Katie Judah, Johnny Mitchell, and Nick Morgan (pictured here).

I’m confident that the Lord will be faithful to our church family as we walk through this season of pastoral succession.

Your Pastor and Friend,
