PASTORAL SEARCH COMMITTEE (PSC)
The PSC comprising Lam Lup Meng, Tony Chan, Lee Chung Cheong, Beh Soo Hee and Phua Cheow Loon are meeting prayerfully on a regular basis. We are continuing to search for (1) a Pastor with substantial experience to serve amongst different ministries and (2) a Pastor specifically for Careers & Newly Marrieds ministry. The profiles of the candidates have been updated for better consistency with our requirements. These profiles are available on the church website.
The pool of potential candidates for these two pastoral positions remain limited. Let us all pray, as a church, for the Lord to lead and provide for our needs for more Pastoral staff. In the meantime, if you know of any potential leads or possibilities, please prayerfully bring it to the attention of the PSC.
KOVAN FELLOWSHIP | EVERY SAT 4PM TO 6PM
