From Pastor Davies – 6/7
At a recent meeting of the Session I shared my goals as I serve MPC as Interim Pastor. I want to share them with you as well. They are as follows:
- Continue the excellence of ministry at MPC. There are so many great things that are being done in the congregation and community. My commitment is to enhance the ministry of MPC through my preaching, teaching, pastoral care, and church administration.
- Support and encourage all staff. MPC is blessed to have an outstanding staff! It is an honor and blessing to work with them.
- Work with all church officers and staff, with input from the congregation, to engage in a process of discerning the church’s future mission and, having done that, to identify the needed leadership skills for the next permanent pastor/head of staff. The months of transition in pastoral leadership represent an excellent opportunity to do this.
- Provide guidance and support for the Pastor Nominating Committee, once elected, in partnership with the Presbytery of St. Augustine’s Commission on Ministry.
I ask for your continuing prayers for my ministry in this church, particularly that God will bless me with good health and that He will give me daily strength and energy for the task at hand. After all, this is my first full time call in 2 ½ years!
Have a great week! And see you in worship!
