Pastoral Succession

If you have questions about the succession process, please visit to read some Frequently Asked Questions. On that page, you will also find contact information to get responses to questions you might have that are not on that page.

Here is one of the questions on the FAQ page:


The Search Committee is meeting every three weeks to consider potential candidates and prepare for interviews. The committee also interacts with the Board on a monthly basis, and so there are continuous discussions and times of prayer happening throughout the month. We recognize our dependence on the Holy Spirit during this search and ask that you join us in praying to this end.

Once a suitable candidate has been found, the Search Committee will present the individual to the Church Board, who in turn will present the individual to the congregation for their affirmation. Our bylaws state that the congregation makes the final decision with a 75% or better vote of confidence. Before such a vote, there would be a time where we all get to meet the individual and hear their heart and call to ministry here at CrossRoads.

Please continue to pray as we anticipate who God will bring a as the new senior pastor to CrossRoads Church. If you would like to know specifically how to pray, please visit the Succession Prayer Plan page on our website.
