Thank you for your continued prayers through this process.
After months of prayer, discernment, discussion, and patience we believe God is unfolding a story of his timing and provision. Originally Ralph Moller, by his own request, was not considered for the role of Senior Pastor and served on the Pastoral Search Team (PST). Over the months of developing a congregational survey, position & church profile to post, and a Senior Pastor job description we saw God’s spirit moving both the PST and the congregation. When it became clear God was leading us toward Ralph, he was asked to step down from the PST, and we continued to discern God’s will. As the story unfolded of God’s promptings and leadings in Ralph, the PST, and the Congregation it became evident God had been preparing Ralph to serve Riverside as Senior Pastor. If you missed the announcement on October 22nd, please take a few minutes to hear the story at this link: https://vimeo.com/
So what’s next?
Ralph will be preaching October 29th and November 5th.
October 29th ; Ralph will be available for Q & A between services and after second service.
November 5th; Ralph and Teresa will be available to after second service for Q & A. We hope everyone attends, including youth, childcare will be provided. The congregation will vote on Ralph’s call as Senior Pastor.
The PST welcomes all conversations and questions. Feel free to reach out to any of us.
In His Service, the Pastoral Search Team
