The Pastoral Search Committee is grateful for insights and response forms shared in our previous learning sessions on preaching ministry and pastoral care ministries here at COS. We are preparing summaries of those insights for the council and congregation, as well as for potential candidates.

Our next learning session will be held this Wednesday evening, March 8, from 6:30-8:00, focusing on congregational leadership.

  • How can a pastor best encourage the many, many people who take leading roles in ministry at COS?
  • How can a pastor best contribute within our council and our staff?

While many comments to us have already named the value of “collaborative leadership,” we invite you to join us as we work to clarify for potential candidates what kind of collaborative leadership will help us live out our mission together.
