Pastor Transition: June Update

by Barbara Brown, Succession Planning Team Member

The Succession Planning Team (STP) is working with lay leaders, staff, and the congregation in preparation for the Rev. Dr. Tim Hart-Andersen’s retirement in October. We have met with the leadership at the Presbytery of the Twin Cities Area to review the advised procedures often used when calling a new Senior Pastor.

Additionally, we have hired a consultant to work with the Ministry and Mission Study Committee, led by Gretchen Musicant and Leigh Niebuhr, as they plan Listening Sessions with the congregation. These sessions will be part of a self-study process to help the congregation reflect on where we are and prepare us to follow where God is leading. Watch for details about upcoming Listening Sessions.

Finally, we are forming a Celebration Committee to plan events celebrating Tim’s nearly 25 years of service at Westminster and his 40 years in ministry. Stay up to date on all of these events and opportunities on the Westminster website.
