On Tuesday, the Executive Presbyter Nominating Committee of the Presbytery of Philadelphia met again. Here is the latest update. As part of our gathering on June 4 we:
- removed from the list of potential candidates one who did not provide the required paperwork by our deadline
- reviewed the list of 26 candidates who have submitted a Personal Information Form, answers to our supplemental questions and a statement of faith. After further conversation we removed six from further consideration, thus leaving us with 20 candidates in total
- determined the candidates with whom we will conduct initial interviews and set potential dates in July for those conversations
At our next meeting (June 11) we will finalize our interview process and questions before meeting with Lucy Rupe to get the latest update on issues in our presbytery. I will provide you with another update after that meeting.
As always, I encourage you to share questions or concerns with any member of the committee. We covet your prayers as we continue in this time of discernment on your behalf.
John M. Willingham, Chair, EPNC
