Pastoral Search Update – November 30, 2022

The following is a message on behalf of the newly formed Mission Study Task Group, which is moving us forward on the path toward identifying and then calling DPC’s next pastor.

The DPC Mission Study Task Group (MSTG) has started its work!  We met for orientation and training with Rev. Mindy Campbell, DPC’s liaison with the Presbytery’s Commission On Ministry.  We’ve set as our goal to include as many of our congregation as possible in this process. In the coming weeks, there will be a Congregation-Wide Survey and invitations to attend Listening Groups, which will offer everyone an opportunity to participate! The MSTG members are:

  • Andy Benson
  • Allen Childs
  • Lola Cooley
  • Craig Garretson
  • Kim Keller
  • Kathy Maclin
  • Laura Polchan

Look for more updates from us soon!

We invite you to review any updates on this important process by visiting our Pastoral Search Updates page, which will include each communication from Session and the MSTG as the work continues. A link to the update hub can be found at the top of our homepage at
