* As search and credentialing processes continue, several congregations are deciding how best to move forward when Zoom is the norm for meeting together – whether it be for applicant interviews or committee processing. One search committee chose recently to do an in-person interview, meeting outdoors to facilitate effective social distancing.
* In April Sharon had contact with _13_ potential pastoral applicants and with _8_ congregations in various phases of transition.
* A couple of search committees are waiting for applicants for their pastoral ministry positions. A couple of others are receiving new applications and discerning who to interview. Two others have been interviewing and are discerning who to present as a pastoral candidate. We invite you to join in prayer for God’s wisdom to guide these important discernment processes.
