Update of MMM Consolidation Proposal

In response to the input from the councils and the congregations of Samuel, Our Savior’s, St. Luke’s, and Immanuel, the executive committee has begun the process of reviewing a proposal for consolidation. The printed copy of the proposal was provided to us by Mr. Raymond.
So far, three specific areas were reviewed by the Metro ministries Executive Committee. They include staff positions, location, and pastors. These recommendations are for what will be called the transition or ‘bridge’ period, which is an estimated period of six to nine months. During that time transition committees will be formed to begin shaping a proposed mission statement, staff, programs, recommending changes in the church appearance in response to a renewed identity, mission, and needs.

1. Transitional pastoral leadership: the committee is recommending Pastor Jane Mountain serve as the full-time transition pastor and Pastor Chris Anderson serve as the part time pastor.

2. The recommended location for the new church will be what is currently Samuel. The site will receive needed renovations and updates, the details of which will be determined once the consolidation happens.

3. Current staff will be given the opportunity to apply for positions with the new congregation and be given special consideration. Exact staff positions and duties will be determined by the leadership of the new congregation.

As the Executive Committee continues to work out the details of the proposal, we will make every effort to keep everyone informed.
