LEAD PASTOR

TRANSITION

After 17 years of fruitful ministry at Living Water, God called Jeff Seavey, our Lead and Planting Pastor, away from vocational ministry. You can hear more about this in Pastor Jeff’s announcement from July 2nd and in our sermon series Transitions: How Jesus Cares For His Church Through Change.

 

On August 13th, we opened up the search to find the next Lead Pastor of Living Water Church. In the days and weeks following, we were encouraged by the overwhelming response we received to this job posting. In total, we’ve received 30 applicants to date, and after multiple rounds of interviews, we narrowed this group down to 2 finalists to present to you. Gavin Ortlund was here this past Sunday (you can hear his sermon here) and the plan was to bring out other finalist on December 10th. However, recent developments at our other candidate’s church have caused him to be unavailable to leave his current congregation. As unexpected as this was, we believe that the Lord is sovereignly leading us in all of these things.

 

As we near a final decision, we continue to desire your feedback and prayers. Please use the form below to send us your thoughts by Monday, November 27th, as you consider Gavin Ortlund as our next Lead Pastor. Gavin himself is considering a number of opportunities, so please be praying for him and Esther as well – that God would give clear leading to all involved.
