UPDATE: Candidate Interviews Coming Soon
Our leaders met with representatives from our search firm on May 17 to review candidates. We could not be more excited about the potential that we see! While we have to keep it vague for now, we want to assure you that we have some high caliber people who want to join our team at Connect. The talent and the passion that we see from their resume packets and videos are off the chart!
We are currently working to set up some Skype interviews with the candidates. Then as we move toward the completion of the hiring process, we will invite the candidate(s) to visit Connect on an upcoming weekend. Please be in prayer for this process as we head into the homestretch. Specifically, please pray for God to give wisdom and clarity both to us and to the candidates. We want to find the person that is right for Connect, but we also want to be sure that Connect is right for our candidate and his/her family. We trust that God will lead us through the final stage of this process. And we absolutely believe that the best is yet to come!
Why We’re Hiring a Full-Time Kids Pastor
One of Connect’s core values is God loves kids and so do we. That is the driving force behind our next staff hire. As we announced earlier this year, we have now launched a search for a full-time Kids Pastor.
As we take this step, we want to acknowledge and thank our current part-time Kids Pastor Tish Carwell. She has been amazing, and it is due to her hard work that we are ready to now make this a full-time gig. Also, while she is going to be instrumental in our search and selection, Tish is not interested in taking on the full-time position. Trust us. We asked.
We are looking for the next person who will buy into the vision and mission of our church, heart and soul. To assist the process, we are partnering with Vanderbloemen, a church staffing firm, to help us with our search. We want someone who will love the kids of Connect and lead the passionate, committed volunteer team that we have in Connect Kids. Plus, this person will be our primary contact with the West Clermont school district.
Our mission is to love and serve the families of this district with no strings attached, and our new Kids Pastor will champion that mission.
