Product Description

When a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregation searches for a new pastor or associate pastor, there are many official guidelines to follow. This step by step guide for nominating committees not only makes these procedures clear and understandable, but it goes behind the rules and regulations to the deeper theological and practical concerns. The author explains how to get organized, compile a list of good candidates, what kinds of questions to ask in an interview and other essential tips.

    This should be required reading for every elder serving on a PNC. Great insight and direction. I would recommend to clergy and laity alike.
