- 2/02/2020 - The Church Council is ready to nominate to you a Pastor Search Committee. An official announcement will be made on 2/9 and 2/16 in all three Sunday morning services. On 2/23, after each morning service, there will be a special called business meeting to vote on the proposed nominees. Those nominees are Jack Grace (chair), Marcus Frye, Tammy Garr, Ken Martin, Rachel White, and Alicia Zieman.
- 1/26/2020 - The 2020 Church Council is formed and met for the first time and had a positive meeting. They will quickly begin working on names to nominate for the church for the 2020 Pastor Search Committee. Once nominated, the church will vote on the candidates during a special called business meeting at the end of a future service.
- At the 12/18/2019 biannual business meeting, a motion put forward by the 2019 Church Council was passed that (1) the church go on record to express appreciation and thanks for each member of the 2019PSC for their labor and diligent service to us over the past few months; (2) that a new Pastor Search Committee be elected; (3) and that the 2020 Church Council be tasked with nominating the candidates for the new Pastor Search Committee.
- The 2019PSC served diligently for months but unfortunately could not reach a consensus on a candidate to move forward with.
- On 6/23/2019, Edgewood Baptist Church overwhelmingly voted to accept the names submitted by the Church Council to serve as the Pastor Search Committee in the process of seeking God's will for our next pastor.

This section will serve as the point of communication for the pastor search process. Here you will find prayer requests, updates, and information for those seeking to submit a resume.
EBC wants to extend gratitude to the 2019 Pastor Search Committee for their diligence and for their time and effort investment. As we turn into 2020, a new committee will be forming soon. Be in prayer for this process and for the 2020 Church Council as they nominate names to bring to the church to vote on.
We will be accepting résumés again as soon as we form a 2020 Pastor Search Committee. Check back by March 1.
