Pastoral search team update

The Pastoral Search Team has identified a Senior Pastor candidate and recommended him to the Leadership Team. The Leadership Team has also met with, and interviewed, the pastoral candidate and affirmed his excellent potential to be our next Senior Pastor. The candidate and his wife feel equally called to CEFC and the Platteville community.


In response to God’s clear leading throughout the search process and in complete unity regarding this candidate, the Search and Leadership Teams have invited Larry and Lisa Lloyd to join CEFC for a Candidating Weekend October 6th-8th. A congregational vote will be scheduled for the following Sunday, October 15th. More details will be available in the coming weeks, but please mark your calendars now.


Please continue to pray for these next steps, decisions and transitions, financial aspects, and CEFC’s future.
