We Need Your Prayers

Please pray:

  • for each of our team members, by name, for deep spiritual cleansing and fullness of the Holy Spirit (Ps. 66:18; 2 Cor.10:4,5; Ephesians 3:19) 
  • for powerful unity and oneness of spirit within the team (Amos 3:3; Matthew 18:19)
  • for supernatural wisdom as to the unique characteristics and traits most needed for our Grace associate pastor (James 1:5) 
  • that our chairman,Victor, has keen supernatural discernment, wisdom, and strength as he leads (1 Cor. 2:5,12)

High Level Process

The Foundations Team has worked with Pastor Sam to define a job description that captures responsibilities for Youth, Worship and Pastoral Care. The job will be posted at several seminary school job boards, some national recruiting sites and the Covenant Connection System. We pray that God works on the heart of our next Associate Pastor to connect with the committee as they review all applicants.


When the ideal candidate is brought to Grace, the Foundations Team and Pastor Sam will collaborate with the Associate Pastor to make any necessary job adjustments so that the Pastor’s gifts are fully captured as blessings to the Grace community.

We won't be rushing any of the steps involved, although we are working as swiftly as possible toward the goal to complete our work and support Grace's calling of the new pastor. We value your prayers as we work through the process carefully and prayerfully.
