Youth Pastor Candidate Meet and Greet!

Over the past 4 months the Youth Pastor Search Team has been working tirelessly to find our next Youth Pastor here at Grace Fellowship. They’ve truly listened to God’s leading and direction…and have recently all come to conclusion on one exciting candidate…TJ McIntosh and his wife Jenn.

And they said yes!!!!!

So, what does this mean?

The agreement as of now is unofficial. But the understanding is that the Search Team wants him here, and TJ and his wife want to be here. They’ve been invited to a Candidate Weekend. The date for that is:

JANUARY 25-27

Here’s the plan:

FRIDAY
- TJ and Jenn will fly in on Friday afternoon (Jan 25).
- They will have dinner that night with the Search Team and their spouses at Adam Sidler’s house.

SATURDAY
- During the morning and afternoon, TJ and Jenn will take a tour of the church, community, and will look at houses and apartments.
- At some point on Saturday, TJ and Jenn will have the opportunity to sit down with Pastor Joe.
On Saturday night, we will host a Grace Youth student, parent, and leader get-together here at the church. This will give TJ and Jenn an opportunity to share their hearts and answer questions.

THE STUDENT, PARENT, AND YOUTH LEADER MEET-AND-GREET WILL BE AT 6:30P IN THE YOUTH COMMONS AND WORSHIP CENTER.


SUNDAY
- TJ and Jenn will sit in on the Middle School and High School DEEPER Bible Study during the 9:00a service.
- They will then have the opportunity to join us for the 10:30a service.
- At 12:00p all Staff are invited to have lunch in the Youth Commons in order to have the chance to meet with TJ and Jenn.
- Following the lunch with Staff, TJ and Jenn will have the opportunity to sit down with the Elders in order to get their final approval.

If all goes well (which we’re positive it will), they will officially be invited to join us here at Grace Fellowship, and then be here in Minnesota by the middle of February.

This is truly exciting news!!
