Search Committee Update


Search Committee Update

On Sunday, December 13, the Pastor Search Committee came before the congregation to recommend, both joyfully and unanimously, Rev. Will Spink to be Southwood’s new Senior Pastor. Their announcement was met with great joy by those in attendance that morning, and those who were able knelt in prayer for God’s continued provision for Southwood and the Spink family.

The Session added its unanimous support of the Search Committee’s decision and called a congregational meeting to be held on January 10, 2016, after the worship service for a vote to call Will Spink as Senior Pastor. The stated purpose of the meeting is to vote on the recommendation to call Will Spink as Senior Pastor and to request that Providence Presbytery approve this call. Members of the Pastor Search Committee will be available to answer questions on Sunday, January 10, from 9:00-10:00am by the fireplace in the Connecting Spaces. You may also send questions via email (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)), and the Search Committee will provide a fuller report during the congregational meeting.

This is an exciting time in the life of Southwood. The Spinks have been a part of our church family for over seven years, during which time Will has served as an associate pastor and director of shepherding. Will came to Southwood after completing his training at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis. Please join us in continuing to pray for Will, Christy, and their girls (Caitlyn, Allie, and Lily) in the coming weeks as they celebrate the birth of Christ and establish plans for this transition.
