As we begin the process of interacting with candidates, please pray that we would appreciate and value each one for the unique gifts and abilities they have been given by God. Pray that we would sincerely enjoy our time with them. Each one we speak with will be a man who has been given a desire, by God, to serve Him here in the U.S. and will be a gifted shepherd and leader of the Lord’s flock. We are family with each candidate by Christ’s work on the cross. Pray that we would show them love, that they would feel loved and cared for and that we would create an atmosphere where they truly feel they are among family. Pray for them personally as they, and their family, discern God’s will for their ministry. Pray that if they are God’s man for Trinity that it would become more and more clear to both them and to the Search Team as we get to know each other more and more. Both the candidates and us are praying for the same thing, that God’s will would be done. Regardless of whether they are the next Senior Pastor for Trinity, please pray that each candidate’s relationship with the Lord would continue to grow and that God would richly bless their ministry and their family.
