Dear Cherrydale Family,

The Search Committee for our next Associate Pastor for Teaching and Shepherding is very grateful for the prayers of the church body. We truly appreciate the church family joining us in praying for our next associate pastor and for the ongoing search process.

Over the past two weeks, we held in-person interviews with both internal candidates and then spent a week in deliberate prayer. After reconvening, we decided to move both candidates forward to the elders for their consideration. The search committee has now completed this phase of the search, and we will await further guidance from the elders.

Please join us in praying this week:

  • For these two candidates and their families as the search moves into its next stage.
  • For the elders as they take the baton from the search committee and seek God’s will for the future of our church.
  • For those serving in our Sunday school, marriage, and shepherding ministries during this season of transition.

Learn more about this position and our search process.

Thank you for your prayers,

Mike Danylak, on behalf of the Associate Pastor for Teaching and Shepherding Search Committee
