CONGREGATION FORUM UPDATE

The Leadership Team Team asked Pastor Gene Heacock, upon his arrival, to look at three areas within FCOB: 1. General state of health, ministry effectiveness, 2. Organizational efficiency, structure and staffing and 3. Spiritual fruitfulness.  On November 8, 2016, Leadership Team Chair, Tom Simmons, reported to the congregation on the outcome of the 90 day S.W.O.T. (Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, Threat) Report prepared by Pastor Gene Heacock reviewing these three areas. The attached document provides an overview of the issues identified and the key efforts which will be undertaken to address them.  Future updates on these initiatives will be published as they are developed.

SENIOR PASTOR TRANSITION UPDATE

In the summer of 2016, Pastor Paul Mundey informed the congregation at FCOB that he would be retiring from full time pastoral ministry, after 40 years of set-apart ministry - 20 of which he served faithfully at FCOB.  As we move into a new day, below you will find information related to this transition.  We will post here updates from the Search Committee related to their work in discerning, with God's help, the next season of ministry at FCOB and who will be leading our congregation as our new shepherd.
