Dear New Life Family,

Last week, after two and a half months of seeking the Lord and following a comprehensive process, the Pastoral Search Committee was pleased to announce who we believe the Lord is calling to be the next Lead Pastor of New Life Church. The Committee is putting Pastor James Louis and his wife Billie forward as the candidate we have selected and will ask members to vote on in June.

As a reminder, will hold a brief, special business meeting after service on Sunday, June 9. It is extremely important that all voting members, of which we currently have 40, are in attendance. The day before on Saturday, June 8, we will have a fellowship gathering where members are encouraged to attend and will have an opportunity to ask Pastor James and Billie questions to help inform their vote the next day. We’ll share more information about that in the coming weeks as plans are solidified. For now, please save these dates. We are required to have a quorum for attendance, which is ⅓ of the total members. For Pastor James to be officially appointed as Lead Pastor, two-thirds of the votes of those in attendance will need to be in favor of him. Pastor Chris Delmadge from the New York Ministry Network Superintendent’s office will lead that brief meeting and vote.

God Bless,

The Church Council
