Application to serve on the Call Committee for Lead Pastor of Christ the King Lutheran
Applications due by February 1, 2023.
Serving on the Call Committee to recommend a new lead pastor is an important responsibility. The Holy Spirit guides the entire call process through open and honest prayer, study, and conversation. The goal is to discern the particular rostered minister whom the committee recommends to the congregation for issuing a call.
Applications for the Call Committee will be reviewed by the Executive Committee who will select applicants based on demographic diversity. The CtK Constitution states that the Call Committee should have six members, voting members of the congregation elected at a congregational meeting. Once selected, the Synod will conduct training for the members of the Call Committee. Expect to serve from three to six months after training is completed. At times, meetings will be weekly – time commitment might be heavy.
Call Committee Expecations
a. Prayer. The call committee should pray often throughout the call process and encourage the congregation to also pray for the call committee members, the candidates, and the congregation, that all may sincerely seek to discern God’s will for the congregation. b. Team-building. It is important for the call committee to take time at the beginning of the process to work on team development. c. Confidentiality. It is vital that the committee maintain strict confidentiality as to any information regarding specific candidates, and boundaries of confidentiality should be clearly agreed upon at the first meeting. d. Communication. - Communication with the congregation council and the congregation about the progress of the call process is vital.
