From the Elders

Elder Update

The May Elder Update

The elders set aside the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month to meet.  Some months, like last month, we had one extra meeting.  In June we are planning to have three meetings also.

The elders continue to pursue the men that have submitted their resumes for the Senior Pastor position.  There are five men who have sent us their information a few months ago that we have been looking at and contacting. Plus, we have just received two new resumes from some other men a few days ago that we are looking at closely.

Pray for us as we continue to seek the Lord and continue to narrow down the candidates to just a few, and then the one.

The Worship and Arts Search committee, (Glenn Moyer-chairman, Bev Earley-secretary, Kyle DeWinter, Ruth Cunningham, Andy Miller and Frankie Emrick) have met twelve times and interviewed three candidates.  It was felt by the committee that two of the candidates did not meet the qualifications. The third candidate was interviewed in depth; he was very qualified, but has since changed his mind about the position and asked that his name be removed.

The Worship and Arts Committee has just received a resume from a new candidate and also a name of another person has come to their attention.

Please pray for these two committees.

Remember the 1st and 15th of each month to fast as much as you can in some area of your life and pray for the needs of Lazy Mountain Bible Church.

In service for the Lord,

Your Elders

The April Elder Update

The Elders and Staff of LMBC will be meeting together on Wednesday, April 26th. The purpose will be to discuss and begin to form a Vision plan concerning the strategic direction for our Church. Please pray for this meeting.


The Worship Director Search Committee has received several resumes and completed a number of interviews with people interested in this ministry position. The committee has also reported the results of the interviews to the Elders for their consideration.


The Elders have received a significant number of resumes for the Senior Pastor position. They have been evaluated to focus on those we feel are best qualified for our church. These men have been contacted personally or by phone to further the selection process. The next step will be for the Elders to futher interview those best qualified to serve as our Shepherd.
