Pastor Search Process Timeline

July, 2021

Interim Search and Transition teams formed

The first job of the interim search team was to create and post a job description for an interim pastor to guide the worship life of the congregation and administration of the church during transition to a new called pastor.

August/September, 2021

Work begins with PneuMatrix Consulting

Working directly with Michelle Snyder of PneuMatrix, the transition team administers the Holy Cow! Consulting Congregational Assessment Tool (CAT) which is taken by over 100 members of the congregation.

The CAT is an assessment instrument that is used to:

  • Measure the level of satisfaction and energy in the congregation
  • Identify the critical success factors for improving organizational climate
  • Pinpoint the strengths of the congregation’s culture
  • Discover where members would like to go in the future
  • Gauge the congregation’s readiness for change
  • Uncover potential resources that may be missing
  • Prepare for a search for the new called pastor

 October, 2021

Follow-up Zoom interviews were held with several candidates.  “The committee is encouraged by the caliber of the candidates that we have followed through the interview process to this point.”

November, 2021

On the recommendation of the Interim Search Committee, the Session and the Commission on Ministry of the Carlisle Presbytery have approved Rev. Matthew Drumheller as Interim Pastor for Pine Street beginning January 3, 2022.
