Pastor Search Update

 October 3, 2017

During August and September, we reviewed the 175+ applications submitted. We deliberately and prayerfully considered each candidate by reviewing resumes, letters, audio files, and sermon links. After that process, we have 11 applicants to consider further and we are in the first round of interviews. Thank you for your continued prayers!

July 26, 2017

The Pastor Search Team would like to thank the New River body for their continued prayer covering as we go through the process. We have received over 100 resumes, and they continue to come in. We are also reaching out to other networks as we compile and narrow the potential candidates. We have diligently been constructing processes to work as efficiently as possible, so when the Lord says "Go", we are prepared and ready. Please continue to pray as we move into the interviewing portion of this search. We know that the Father has anointed New River Fellowship, and our future. Be thankful, expectant and faithful. Romans 8:28.

The job posting for Senior Pastor is officially open!  The team has posted it here on the church website, and is also using a couple of external job sites designed for pastoral staff. This week, the team is praying specifically about the future pastor (part of their thirty day prayer plan).

July 6, 2017

The pastor search team has met several times to establish some foundational tools: a thirty-day prayer plan, a "DNA Map" of New River and a list of desired traits in the next Senior Pastor.  They looked carefully at the results of the churchwide survey in creating the map and list of traits, and are using these tools in preparation for offically opening up the Senior Pastor position for candidates.  In a few weeks, you will see a longer update from the team itself.  The team started the thirty-day prayer plan on June 28th and it will end on July 27th.  Click here to join the Pastor Search Team in prayer right now!

The pastor search team was announced on May 28th and on June 4th, the ten members were introduced at Sunday services.  After the introductions, board member Kyle Wortham and Pastor Korby Taylor led a corporate prayer over the team, their families and their service.  The team recently met for the first time, with the board and campus pastors.  Click on the "Pastor Search Team" link on the right to learn more about the team.

The Senior Pastor Survey is now closed.  Almost 600 people shared their thoughts about New River and the next Senior Pastor.  The results from the survey will help the pastor search team immensely.  This week the leadership will prayerfully consider who will make up the Pastor Search Team, and announce it this Sunday, May 21.  

May 8, 2017

The New River leadership is currently forming a Pastor Search Team, in accordance with our church bylaws. Recommendations for the team have closed. Names from all three campuses have been submitted, and the team will be announced on Sunday, May 21st.  

The survey has been a big success so far, with close to 500 people responding!
