Transition Team Update: April 6, 2014

Greetings Woodmen Congregation!

As you know, it is the desire of our leadership team to have a genuine commitment to both communication and transparency during our current season of transition. To this end, we wanted to provide a brief update on several pertinent issues:

  • Leadership Team: I first want to express my personal thanks for the many overtures of care, concern and appreciation the congregation has shared with me in regard to my recent role as Interim Lead Pastor. They have been both encouraging and meaningful. I am grateful to the Elders, who have not only led well in their capacity of overseers of the transition, but also in their role of encouraging our staff. They have truly been shepherds to our team. In addition, I want to express my appreciation to our Strategic Team, who has come alongside the  Elders and me regarding various decisions and directions of the church during this time. This team includes some of our staff pastors and directors: Mike Biedermann, Judy Dunagan, Don McCaleb, Bill Roberson, Paul Rude and Paul Zigan. Please be in prayer for this team as they lead and assist through a variety of transition issues.
  • Candidate Website: The Search Team has recently completed the official candidate’s website which will assist those interested in applying for our Lead Teaching/Vision Pastor. The site is very informative and features information about Woodmen, a position description and a candidate profile which lists the qualities and characteristics we are seeking for this role. The site is available for public viewing at lp.woodmenvalley.org (select the “Woodmen Attender” option on the initial page to be taken directly to the content. Candidates will be asked to complete a form in order to view the site — the content is exactly the same once you’ve cleared the splash page). We trust you will enjoy and benefit from the information contained on this site.

As always, should you have questions, comments or concerns regarding any aspect of our transition season, feel free to contact our elders at elders@woodmenvalley.org, or let our Strategic Team or me know how we may be of service to you.

The best is yet to come,

Doug Olsen, Interim Lead Pastor
