Announcements for Greensboro First Presbyterian – Join Us for Worship Sunday!

 Special Announcement:  Our new Interim Pastor is the Rev Alex Stevens.   Alex has had extensive training and experience as an interim pastor and also in pastoral/spiritual care. In his 16 years of ministry he has served  installed, interim and supply pastor positions and he has also served as a hospital chaplain.  His most resent assignment was with the Homer Presbyterian Church as their Interim Pastor. He is a member of the Committee on Ministry of Northeast Georgia Presbytery.

In the PC (USA),  the Interim Pastor will work in the following areas.

  • Worship leadership and preaching
  • Pastoral care
  • Work with the session to provide for the life and ministry of the congregation
  • Administrative work including supervision of other staff persons
  • Staff support for programs and committees of the congregation
  1. In addition, an Interim/Transitional Pastor leads a congregation during the transition time after an installed pastor has departed, helping the congregation prepare to welcome the leadership of a new installed pastor. 
  2. Interim/Transitional pastors will help the session provide for continuity of essential programs, and may assist the session in assessing needs for changes in programs and ministries of the congregation.
  3. The Interim/Transitional pastor may, if the session and the Committee on Ministry approve, work with the session in a mission study or assist the Pastor Nominating Committee in gathering data for the writing of the Ministry Information Form. With those possible exceptions, the Interim/Transitional pastor may not be involved in the work and discernment of the PNC.
  4. A good Interim/Transitional pastor will “hit the ground running," beginning his/her time with the congregation with intensity and energy, and will leave with intentionality, engaging in a “good goodbye” with the congregation and its staff.
