Dear Church - Thank you for your continued support and prayers. We sent out an electronic prayer card at the end of August as a reminder to be praying for Cross of Glory, preparing hearts, giving clarity, unity, protection from attacks, and for the Holy Spirit's guidance and power. We have felt your prayers and have heard from many of you as you have lifted us up in prayer. For that we are grateful.

Over the last month we met and began to work with the Converge denomination President and Executive Minister who runs the Converge Rocky Mountain Placement Network. He has been advising us along the process and has divided it into manageable steps for us to follow in our pastoral search. It has been a huge help to know we are on track and have an open ear when guidance is needed. Over the next two weeks we will be completing surveys that will help build the job description and requirements for the Sr. Pastor job posting. The process is long but we know finding the right person is worth the time and effort.

Thank you for praying and for your encouragement as we continue through this process.

Dan Totman, Church Chair

Dear Cross of Glory Family,


The Senior Pastor Search Team is meeting weekly to prepare the crucial steps of posting the vision and description of our church ministry along with a job description for the Senior Pastor position at Cross of Glory. We ask that you join the Search Team through your commitment to pray that the Holy Spirit will show us clearly who God has chosen to lead His church. We also ask for you to pray that the Search Team will work in unity, and be filled with His wisdom and discernment as we seek our next pastor.


Sincerely, 

Dan Totman, Paul Rothenberger, Barb Chamberlain, Betty Foulkes, Ed Esco, Erik Stapleton and Kris Kaihoi

The Senior Pastor Search Committee started meeting in early July once the results of the June business meeting had been finalized. 

We began by praying for our church and for wisdom as we discern who God is calling to be our next pastor. We reviewed some of the processes that prior search committees had undertaken including getting input from a member of the search team that hired Pastor Jon 28 years ago. This showed us that we have a lot of work to do to evaluate our church needs which will help determine the skill sets we will be looking for.

As we move through this process we are requesting that you pray with and for us that we will be open to the Lord's timing and will as we look for our next leader. Next please pray for unity among our team and that God would prepare the hearts of everyone in our congregation to whomever He is calling. Pastor Jon summed it up very eloquently in his final message when he instructed us to be ready and open to a New Season (Isaiah 43:19) that God is preparing for Cross of Glory.
