Lead Pastor Transition
In January 2020 we launched the Lead Pastor search process with the Vanderbloemen Search Group and the Pastoral Search Committee (the “Committee”). Below you’ll find more information about the extensive vetting process undertaken by the Committee and the Elders.
The Pastoral Search Committee has identified Lucas Cooper of Bayview Glen Church, Ontario, Canada as our primary candidate for the role of Lead Pastor. Lucas and his family will be at Westover on April 18 and he will be preaching to the congregation that day. An in-person congregational vote for members is scheduled for May 2 and we encourage as many members as possible to be present on that day.
There are four stages in the pastoral search process. Every stage will be covered in prayer, seeking the Lord’s wisdom and guidance. The process may be subject to change in the months ahead as we work with the final candidates, but right now this is our best plan of how it will unfold. Please review the stages below:
The process is overseen by a Pastoral Search Committee composed of representatives from the Elders, the Deacons, and our congregation at large.
