Pastoral Transition
Updates from the Session 

In the Fall of 2024, The Pastor Nominating Committee was formed.  Jimmy Salmon was elected Chair and Erin Stephens was elected the Secretary. Bill Fountain, Hannah Vaught, and Carol Wade also serve on the committee. For any questions, please feel free to contact any of the committee members.

In February of 2023, Reverend Andrew Bowman shared that God had called him leave his position as Senior Pastor and Head of Staff at First Presbyterian Church.  As our congregation moves through this time of transition, a process has been developed that involves feedback from the congregation, election of a Pastor Nominating Committee, and guidance from the Presbytery of Transylvania. While none of us know exactly how long this effort will take, we trust that God already knows who will be the next pastor to serve our church and thus commit ourselves to prayer and patience as this time of mutual discernment unfolds. While emails sharing updates on Session’s actions will be sent to members periodically, we encourage you to check this page as new and previous communications regarding this pastoral search will be posted here.

On 9/3/23 we held our First Mission Study Gathering: Appreciative Inquiry
