Pastor Nominating Committee 


Session and Presbytery Committee on Ministry approved our church’s Ministry Information Form (MIF) on March 19 and April 11, respectively.

This is the second completed step in our 5-step plan. The MIF provides a narrative picture of the mission and ministry of First Pres and our sense of call. Prospective pastors will use the MIF to begin discerning whether God is calling them to First Pres.
