Article IX, section 1 of our constitution requires the following process in selecting a new Senior Pastor: 

  • The Pastoral Search Committee recommends a Senior Pastor to the Church Council.
  • If two-thirds of the Church Council members approve, the candidate will be recommended to the membership.
  • The candidate will be presented to the church membership for consideration at a special business meeting. Only one candidate can be considered at a time by the membership. Election of the Pastor requires a two-thirds vote of the members present.


If you have made it this far, thank you for taking the time to learn about Calvary Community Church and what we are looking for as we seek God's leadership for our next Senior Pastor.  Perhaps you have now decided that God is calling you to a place of service other than Calvary.  If so, our prayers and best wishes are with you in that ministry. 

Perhaps, however, after prayer and deliberation you sense God's direction to pursue this opportunity further.  We are excited to learn more about God's work in your life, and the vision He is giving you for carrying on the ministry of Calvary Community Church.  We appreciate your willingness to share yourself as we go through this process together.  We assure you that we are praying for you, that we will be as open as possible with you, and that we will treat your application in complete confidence.
