Karen Moore said that Gary told her that we could negotiate on the transitional pastor. Dyan Dunsworth said it depends on what we want to pay for one. Hazel Stewart said that we could have the transitional pastor  6 to 18 months and we can not get a pastor in that time. John Stewart said that we need a committee or existing committee to chose. Dyan Dunsworth said we would cease on looking for a period of time. John Stewart said on the sixth step the search committee begins. Karen Moore said as the transitional pastor goes through the steps with us. John Stewart said the existing pulpit search committee will go through the search for the transitional pastor, if it passes or they will continue on searching for a interim. 15 voted yes, for the transitional pastor, 2 voted no. It passes. 


John Stewart discussed bylaws and made the motion to suspend the article 4.5.1 and rewrite it, (need to have a interim pastor first before a transitional pastor.) Dyan Dunsworth mentioned that a transitional pastor is a new thing, after the bylaws were written of the interim pastor. Jenny Riggs seconded the motion. Voted and passed.

John made the motion to adjourn, seconded by Hazel Stewart. Voted and passed. 

Bradley Davis closed in prayer.
The meeting ended at 6:55 pm
