Pilgrim Church Council

Emergency Meeting

May 9, 2018


Present:   Tara Swanson, Andrea Gibbens, Diane Hepburn, Elizabeth Betancourt, Larry Solberg, Glenn Hoxie, Lu Trullinger, Bill Justice, Sara Hoxie, Sue Crandell, Peggie Linville and Pam Crowe. Jessica French was present via phone.

Tara Swanson called the meeting to order at 5:30 pm with a prayer.

The Interim Search Committee (Diane Hepburn, Glenn Hoxie and Elizabeth Betancourt) reported on their progress. They received six (6) applications for Pilgrim’s interim position. They interviewed four (4) candidates and have asked two (2) for second interviews. The committee feels strongly that they have a preferred candidate at this point and since time is of the essence, they are asking the council’s approval to ask one candidate to come serve Pilgrim, providing this is how they feel after second interviews on the coming Monday and Tuesday evenings. The committee provided an overview of the candidate’s background and qualities that seem to be a good fit for this church. An interim may be able to join the congregation as soon as July.

The council approved the committee’s request by consensus.

Pam offered a closing prayer.

Tara adjourned the meeting at 5:45.
