Succession Update for May 2020 

Greetings from the Pulpit Search Committee.

I’m Deacon Lawrence Hibbert and I’m here to provide you with an important update on our search process.

As a reminder, our congregation appointed a Pulpit Search Committee to guide the church in succession planning after Pastor Soaries made his retirement announcement in July 2019.

Succession update for November 2019: A recommitment to our legacy

The goal of the Pulpit Search Committee is to create a seamless transition through a transparent and open process to recommend to the church a candidate for senior pastor who is capable of building upon the inspired legacy of FBCLG and Pastor Soaries. With your support and continued prayers, we believe that God will provide a leader that will build on our strong foundation and remain focused on unifying our church to do the Lord’s work, utilizing the strength of our diversity, attracting and retaining active members, and ensuring financial continuity.
