The direction and future of New River will be shaped by the next senior pastor; therefore, this team, and who serves on it, is the most important part of the search. The team is a tool in God's process of bringing the next senior pastor to our church, and operates in an advisory capacity to the board of directors.  On behalf of the entire church body, this team will prayerfully, and with full diligence, consider many candidates. Under God's guidance, the team will discover the person who God is preparing to lead New River in the future. As such, the people on it should understand Scripture well – how to “rightly handle the word of truth” (2 Tim 2:15) so it will prioritize what Scripture prioritizes in looking for a senior pastor. The most important criteria for the people on this team to meet are the abilities to:

  • Keep Christ at the center of this effort, in accordance with Biblical standards
  • Not be distracted by human agenda, including avoidance of gossip and negative talk
  • Keep broad enough perspective to see beyond personal preferences and needs
