Transition Plans

December 2023

After seeking advice from church consulting experts and several respected pastors, as well as Jimmie Sheffield of the AR Baptist State Convention, each independently and in unison recommended that Park Hill take the following steps at this time.  The personnel committee has wholeheartedly agreed.

  1. December will be a celebration of the birth of our Savior and a time of prayer for our church. Mark and Garrick will fill the pulpit during this time. Take this pause to diligently pray that God lead and guide us into the future.

  2. In January, we will begin a Smart Start interim provided by the ABSC.  This is comprised of eight weeks of preaching from two of their team members and a program specifically designed for churches in transition. We will continue to search for an interim pastor and begin thinking about next steps in starting the search for our new Senior Pastor.

We are looking forward to having Jeremy Briggs be with us the weekend of December 9th and 10th in view of a call. Be praying for Jeremy and his family as we vote on him to be our next Student Pastor.

Again, we cherish your prayers at this time for our church, our staff, and for all that God has planned for PHBC.
