Our congregation elected the Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) in November, 2016, with the goal of nominating a candidate for the Senior Pastor position at First Presbyterian Church of Burlingame.  Our Committee began its work in December after the Mission Study Report was approved by the Session.  A link to that report is provided below.

We are excited to report that our Ministry Information Form (MIF) has been approved by Session and the Committee on Ministry, and is now published on the Presbytery’s Church Leadership Connection website (http://clc.pcusa.org) where it is visible to candidates seeking Senior Pastor positions.

The PNC is beginning to receive and review Personal Information Forms (PIFs) from prospective candidates and looks forward to hear from those interested in the position.

Our committee is working diligently and we are currently reviewing a number of potential candidates. However, we could use your help.  We have prepared two template letters for you to use if you are interested. One letter is for sending to your network of contacts to see if any know someone that they would recommend we consider as our new Senior Pastor. The second letter is for sending to someone that you believe is worthy and who should therefore consider applying for our Senior Pastor position.  

Both of these template letters can be accessed for your use. Please click on the links below to access these letters in Word format. Please help your PNC by using one or both of these letter templates to enable our committee to consider all worthy Senior Pastor candidates.

Template Letter #1 for sending to your network: PDF, ZIP

Template Letter #2 for sending to persons you want to encourage to apply to be our next Senior Pastor: PDF, ZIP

Yours, in Christ
