Your Call Committee has completed the first round of current candidate interviews. We now enter a period of continued prayer seeking Divine guidance, review, discussion, and development of second interview questions for the chosen candidates.

It is projected that this process of prayerful consideration will take until mid-November. Your continued prayers and patience are greatly appreciated.
