An Update From Pastor Paul Dean: April 24, 2024

 In Transition Blog

Due to the number of staff transitions we have experienced over the past few months, I would like to provide an update on the progress we are making. While these transitions are never easy, I have complete trust that the Holy Spirit is moving Prince of Peace into its next chapter with hope, new energy, and purpose.

There are currently two active call committees at Prince of Peace for the purpose of calling two new pastors. One pastor, the Associate Pastor of Young Adult Ministry, will be focused on connecting with our younger generations (20’s-40’s). This is a much-needed area of emphasis. I don’t think God has given up on that generation, and we will meet that challenge. The second pastoral call will focus on spiritual formation and teaching as we rebuild community and our small group ministry.

In addition to the two pastoral positions mentioned above, we are currently working on hiring a new Director of Worship. We will provide updates as we reach the final stages of the process. We also recently posted a position for our Choral and Traditional Music Ministries. The position’s start date will be effective August 1, just in time to bring our choir and ensembles back from their summer break. Both leaders will be dynamic and engaging as we seek to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our community.

Our Spiritual Care Ministry is being shored up by the addition of a part-time retired senior pastor who has recently joined Prince of Peace. He has already been officiating funerals, hospital, and home visitations. His formal welcome will come the week of May 6. In addition, we will be adding another part-time Spiritual Care Pastor in the coming weeks.

Please check the Transition Blog for updates each week as we continue making progress in our hiring efforts.

We have major challenges in front of us, but with your continued support, I trust that the days ahead are bright for our church.
