Leadership Updates

Proposed Bylaw Amendment

August 2, 2020

In order to realign our bylaws with current state standards and make needed updates to better reflect the leadership structure of the early church, our elders are proposing some amendments to our current set of bylaws.


If you have questions or would like a copy of the bylaws, email our elders at elders@firstchristiancb.org.

Church Leadership Session

On July 18 and 19, we hosted a Church Leadership Session with Dr. Gary Johnson. He walked through how the church was structured in the book of Acts and what we can learn from it today. Our elders also presented needed changes to the bylaws of the church.


You can watch the presentation in its entirety below. If you have questions or would like a copy of the bylaws, email our elders at elders@firstchristiancb.org.

Lead Pastor Search

Our elder team began the search process for our new Lead Pastor at the beginning of May. Since then, we’ve received numerous applications and we’re currently reviewing several of those candidates. Our search team is made up of our elder team along with two church members, Mark Miller and Suzanne Nocita. Our executive pastor, Matt Bortmess, is also assisting the team. 

 

As we continue to have conversations and review the applications, we’re praying hard through this whole process, and we’d love for you to be praying along with us. We’re asking God to bring someone who has a deep love for God and his kingdom, pursues God through the Bible and prayer, will serve and lead his church, and love our city and those in it who need the hope of Jesus.

 

We’ll continue to share updates moving forward. We love you and are grateful to be pursuing Jesus’ mission with you.
