Lead Pastor Search


After spending the first six months of this year discerning the role and responsibilities of our Lead Pastor within RH, our Church Wide Elders have begun the process of searching for someone to fill this role.  To accomplish this, the Church Wide Elders have raised up a Lead Pastor Search Team that is being led by Robb Hammond, one of the Church Wide Elders. The goal of the Lead Pastor Search Team will be to identify potential candidates and recommend final candidates to the elders for their consideration.

The Search Team is currently working with an outside consultant to develop a candidate profile that will help us identify candidates that have the gifts and talents to lead us into the church we are becoming.  We plan to begin interviewing candidates late this year, and have a recommendation from the Lead Pastor Search Team to the Elders on final candidates in early 2016.  We are prayerful that this timeline will ideally result in having called a Lead Pastor by spring of 2016 with them joining the RH family in the summer. 


Every step of this process has been bathed in prayer and we are calling RH to pray for the following:

  • Wisdom for the Elders as they discern who is called to this role
  • Discernment for the Lead Pastor Search Team
  • Pray for future Lead Pastor and their family
  • Pray for the community that our Future Lead Pastor may be leaving.  That God would care and provide for them.
