The Endowment Trust Selection Committee is made up of the chairs of all standing committees as well as church leadership and three members at large with financial backgrounds. The purpose of this committee is to evaluate the best financial vehicle to invest the monies made from the sale of the BB&T building and the criteria for use of said money. They will begin meeting in September and estimate this process will take at least 6 months. Please be in prayer for them as they begin this important task.

Pastor Search Committee Update:

Over the last month, initial conversations have taken place with the candidates. We are currently conducting virtual interviews with each of the ten candidates, and plan to complete these interviews by the end of next week. After the virtual interviews are complete, we will narrow down the list of candidates.

The next step is to conduct in-person interviews with the shortlisted candidates. These interviews will be held in Carrollton in order to give candidates the opportunity to see our community. After these interviews are complete, we seek God’s further guidance in the call for the next pastor at FBC. This process is very difficult to coordinate and will be further into the later part of this year.
