On Sunday evening, February 27, at our annual Business Meeting, PVC members met with Oregon Conference President Dan Linrud to discuss the values and unique DNA of our congregation and establish a Pastoral Search Advisory Committee. The conversation was positive and optimistic! President Linrud and Pastor Randy Hill, the newly-appointed Oregon Conference Assistant to the President, asked important questions and listened attentively as members shared their answers.

After taking nominations from the floor, votes were submitted in writing and tallied. Fourteen PVC members were elected to serve on the Pastoral Search Advisory Committee:

Penny Ammon (Lead Elder)
David Russell (Board Chair)
Justin Canfield
Nancy Fandrich
Paul Haffner
Beverly Hall
Ed Hoover
Heidi Hudson
Scott Kessler
Stephanie Liongco
Claire McGinnis
Jason Panasuk
Aileen Stanley
Hannah Wachter

The committee will begin their work soon under the leadership of Dan Linrud and Randy Hill. Let’s be praying daily for the Holy Spirit to guide each one of them in this important work!
