Meet the associate pastor search team

update: march 3rd

The Search Team met on Sunday, March 3rd to review survey results from the congregation. Our secretary, Tim Worley, is compiling all of the data to give us an accurate representation of the data so that we can interpret what our faith family is saying to us, via this survey. Thank you to WABC for your participating in this survey. We have been so overjoyed seeing your feedback. Our pastor, Tyler Armstrong, and media assistant, Tony Bush, will begin meeting to create a profile of our church and local area for candidates. This video will be posted here, as well as sent to candidates, so they can get to know about us before the process deepens further.

We are still sticking to our current plan, which is to receive resumes until Sunday, March 31st. All resumes should be submitted to info@woodwardavenuebaptist.org.

If you have applied for this position, thank you for your continued patience with us as we continue this process. Our team is doing their due diligence to pray over and review all resumes.

Continue to pray for these things:
  • Wisdom and discernment for the search team. 
  • Unity among our faith family
  • The candidates who have already applied and will be applying for this position.
  • Pray for the candidates' families.

update: February 18th

We are pleased with how our search process has gone so far and we are so thankful for the team that the Lord and our church assembled. We have been hard at work developing a church profile to help us in our search for the Associate Pastor of worship and discipleship. On Sunday, February 25th, we will conduct a survey at the end of the worship service. You have until Sunday, March 3rd to turn in your survey, but we would LOVE to have it at the end of service. This survey is going to be utilized in the search as a tool to give us insight into our faith family's desires for this position while we seek out the Holy Spirit's guidance for the right man for this position. We do not view this survey as a mandate nor do we view it as a way to voice preferences regarding any particular aspects of the position.

Our plan currently is to receive resumes until Sunday, March 31st. This will be right at the 8 week time period that our opening has been posted. All resumes should be submitted to info@woodwardavenuebaptist.org.
Continue to pray for these things:
  • Wisdom and discernment for the search team. 
  • Unity among our faith family
  • The candidates who have already applied and will be applying for this position.
  • Pray for the candidates' families.
