The day has finally arrived...the announcement of our first choice for candidate for senior pastor. Today it became public that our beloved youth pastor Jay Hackett has been officially and unanimously nominated as the senior pastor candidate by our senior pastor search committee and our elder leadership team. Our church staff is ecstatic. We have all recognized in Jay God's calling to step up into the role of senior pastor. We expected it. And now we celebrate with our church family as we prepare for our future under Jay's leadership. God has been so faithful to us during our year of transition without a senior pastor. We have seen much spiritual fruit. But now with the search for our new senior pastor being finished, we can focus even more on the kingdom fruit that God wants to bring through our PCBC family. I hope you are excited. Our church staff family could not be even more thrilled with the public announcement today. And our anticipation for the future of our church continues to grow!
For those who may not know Jay as well, we will have a Q&A session open to all church members on March 10 at 6pm in our fellowship hall. Our congregational vote on Jay will be at the end of our worship service on March 17.
