On Sunday, April 21, the Pastor Search Committee will present its unanimous recommendation of the man whom the members believe the Lord is calling as our next Senior Pastor. Please join us in the main sanctuary at 9:40am on April 21 for the presentation of the recommendation prior to Sunday School (child check-in will begin after the presentation). Printed information about the candidate and a schedule of opportunities to meet him and his family will be provided. We hope you will make plans to be there so our entire congregation can celebrate together this exciting news of what the Lord has done. The candidate will be preaching in view of a call at both morning services the following Sunday, April 28.

Pastor search committee covenant of agreements

As members of the pastor search committee of First Baptist Church of Newnan, we gladly covenant to participate in the work of the committee according to the following agreements. 

Pray for the search committee

Father,

I thank You for this church–its history of ministering the gospel in word and deed. Thank You for the faithful men and women who have led us through the years. We’re grateful for how our current staff devotes their best for Your kingdom, serving You with excellence by the power of Your Spirit.

Today, we come together as a church, seeking Your will for our next pastor. We ask for unity and clarity as we begin the search process. Thank You for this team! Guide them by Your Word and Holy Spirit to find our next shepherd. Grant them humility, discernment, and patience as they speak with candidates and work together. May we support them in our prayers and encouragement. As Aaron and Hur held up the hands of Moses, use us to help this committee. Remind us daily to pray for them. Use this process to bring revival to this church. We desire to be the people of God, on mission in this city, nation, and world!

In Jesus’ name.

Amen.
