Pastoral Transition

As you know, Highlands is in the midst of a pastoral transition following the death of Dr. Dave.  We have been blessed by the leadership of Rev. Bev to walk with us during time.  It is our desire to share as much information as possible during this process and you can find updates and information here.

The Process

The PC(USA) has a very structured process for discerning who will be called to become the next pastor at Highlands. You can see the steps in the process to the left.  

In February 2022, Highlands commissioned the Mission Study Team to begin their work. The Team will present their work to the congregation on June 12, 2022. At this congregational meeting, the Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) will be elected and commissioned to begin their work. 

Mission Study Report

The Mission Study Team conducted this study from February 2022 through May 2022. Our mission study process involved thoughtful listening, careful and prayerful reflection, and deep conversations. 

The Mission Study Report summarizes our findings.
