Staff Transition at Lakeside
On June 30, 2017, Lakeside Presbyterian Church began the next stage of its life as a community and as a congregation. By accepting the retirement of our Senior Pastor, Lakeside’s members entered into the deliberate process of identifying the individual God has called to serve in that capacity for the coming years.
A Pastor Nominating Committee was elected on June 10, 2018, and the members have been hard at work tackling a wide range of challenges. Meet the committee members:
Carol Bredemeyer Jentry Eck (chair) Bob Lee Peter Teremi
Lora Davis Denise Hanser Sterling Pratt Tiffany Wolff
Beth Dieter Matt Johnson John Sprague
Each member has agreed to serve, with the support of your prayers, for the entirety of the process to define, discover and deliver the individual called by God to serve as Lakeside’s next Senior Pastor. It’s not easy work. The PNC encourages you to visit this page often for updates on the process.
If at any stage of the process you feel like asking a question or sharing a concern, please email the PNC at: PNC@lakesidechurch.org.
To help explain the steps that the Presbyterian Church (USA) follows to call a pastor, we’ve included this flow chart.
“This is a time to slow down and to follow an intentional, deliberate process that
is not to be rushed. We want to ensure that we select the right person as Senior
Pastor, one who will lead us on the next leg of our journey as a church.”
