Senior Pastor Recommendation process:

If you have a name that you would like to submit to the Senior Pastor Search Committee, please use the following process. This process will help the committee eliminate those men that do not have an interest.

1. First, contact the man that you would like to see considered and ask his permission to submit his name to the Senior Pastor Search Committee (SPSC). If he is in agreement, have him send his resume to you.

2. Once you receive his resume, please prepare a brief letter of introduction and forward the resume, along with your letter, to the Senior Pastor Search Committee c/o the church office (2102 Bell Shoals Road, Brandon, FL 33511). You may also send via email to . We would not want to harm the Pastor’s current position in his church by breaching any confidential submission.  Therefore, a reply of receipt will be sent to you in order to keep the submission confidential.

Thank you for your prayers as the search committee seeks to know who God’s man is to lead Bell Shoals.
