PASTOR IN PEBBLE BEACH Our Church in the Forest pastor is now retiring after sixteen years of gifted service. At the onset of taking this post he was advised by his mentor, “When you leave there for Heaven, it will be more of a lateral move!” Perhaps this view will attract your interest as well. Located in Pebble Beach, California, our 250-person, multi-denominational congregation of primarily retired folks is grateful to be here. Most have chosen to reside in this Central Coast location with its abundance of beauty and culture as well as its temperate weather. For those candidates interested in the full-time minister position at Church in the Forest, we ask but a few questions: Would you enjoy conducting one weekly worship service (except for major celebrations) accompanied by professionally performed classical music in a beautiful, glass-fronted chapel? Can you deliver a well-polished sermon with intellectual fiber? Do you like people and are you willing to provide supportive pastoral care? Do you have a sense of humor? Do you dislike committees? Would you prefer not to have innumerable administrative responsibilities such as a choir, multiple church services, Sunday School and constant fundraising? If you answered “yes” to these questions, you might be interested in exploring further! Should your strong academic background and successful, senior ministerial history prompt you to consider applying, please visit our website at www.churchintheforest.org and click on the “Pastor Search” button on the home page. If you have additional questions, you may contact David Nee, Chair, Search Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
