It is with great joy and thankfulness to God that we write to you today to announce that we have selected a candidate for Senior Pastor of LEC, and that he has gladly accepted to come and preach the call.
Last September, we began the process of forming a search committee. Upon advice from the district, the committee was made up of the elected members of your administrative board. We met, prayed, and sought God, under the exemplary leadership of Rev. Michel Bisaillon, District Superintendent for the province of Quebec. We took this responsibility with the utmost care, asking God to lead us and to open or close doors as He saw fit.
Over the past few months, we have received applications, met with candidates, prayed, discussed, and eventually narrowed it down to one candidate. We have now met with this candidate several times and unanimously felt this was the candidate God was leading us to choose.
This Sunday, March 13, we will announce this to the congregation during the morning service, and at this time we will share the name of the candidate.
Then on Saturday, March 19 from 2 to 4 pm, you will be invited to meet the candidate at LEC for a Q&A led by Rev. Bisaillon. If you have any questions you would like to have asked during the Q&A, you can send them to [email protected].
On Sunday morning, March 20, the candidate will preach, and after the service, following a short question period, members will vote on the candidate.
There will be an option to vote online, but we would encourage any member who is comfortable to join us in person.
Finally, we wish to thank you, the congregation of Lakeshore Evangelical Church, for your support, encouragement and prayers throughout this process. To God be the glory!
Your Search Committee,
Catherine Burrell Di Nunzio
