St. Luke MET & Call Process

MET stands for Mission Exploration Team and also refers to the process the team and the congregation will thoughtfully complete prior to the calling of a new Pastor in Ministry. This process can take congregations three months to one year or more (per Synod guidance).

The process will give St. Luke the opportunity to review and assess our mission and ministry needs. This work sets the Call Committee and Bishop up for greater success in finding the right candidate that fits the needs of our St. Luke congregational family. The MET process helps to essentially define the job description and qualities needed by a candidate.

The MET team meets every 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall.
