Pastor Search Committee Covenant

On Sunday evening, November 24, we had a special Commissioning Service for our Pastor Search Committee. During this time together, we recited two covenants (one from the committee toward the church and one from the church toward the committee). Both the committee and the church desire, above all, to seek the Lord's will to discern who will be the next pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church.


Below is the covenant as presented that evening. Feel free to bookmark this page for ready reference or click here to download a PDF to store on your computer or print a copy.
