  • Summary:

    When a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregation searches for a new pastor or associate pastor, there are many official guidelines to follow. This step-by-step guide for nominating committees not only makes these procedures clear and understandable, but it goes behind the rules and regulations to the deeper theological and practical concerns. Foose explains how to get organized, how to compose the Congregational Information materials, how to compile a list of good candidates, what kinds of questions to ask in an interview, and other essential tips and tactics to call a suitable pastor.

    Drawing upon years of experience working with pastors, candidates, and congregations, Foose tells the “inside story” on how to find just the right pastor and how to allow the search process to be a time of spiritual discernment and growth in faith.
