News From the Pastor Nominating Committee: March 22, 2018


News From the Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC).…

The Pastor Nominating Committee has gotten right to work after being elected by the congregation. We’ve begun meeting and started the search process for PHPC’s next Head of Staff/Senior Pastor. 

We’ve been introduced to the many tools our Presbytery has to offer, taken an initial look at all the data available (demographic studies, congregational surveys, and previous session retreat information) and are working on timelines for the various phases of the search.

We’ve also determined our individual roles within our committee which will help us successfully complete our task:


Tiv Alston                                Co-chair

Shawn Badinger                     Project Manager

Dave Huffman                        Hospitality Coordinator

Chris Keyser                           Co-chair

Jeff Milway                             Communications Coordinator

Alan Klein                                Chaplain

James Park                            Data Manager

Kathy Reineking                     Corresponding Secretary

Diane Warren                          Recording Secretary

Jillian Zinn                               Committee Member 

We’d like to have you learn a little bit more about each of us as we begin this journey together, so you’ll receive a separate email soon with that includes a short bio for each of us.  We ask for your prayers throughout this journey.
