MVC Church Surveyby PNC on January 16, 2023
Greetings MVC Family,
As you know, the search for a new senior pastor is underway. One of the first steps for the Pastoral Nominating Committee (PNC) is gathering information to guide our decisions. Recently, you have heard and read about one aspect of this process: The PNC Survey, more formally known as The Church Assessment Tool (CAT) run by Holy Cow. This tool will provide a clearer picture of who we are as a church and what directions are important for our future. Your response is very important to us.
All answers are strictly anonymous. We have no way of matching any assessment to a particular person, so please feel free to candidly share your perceptions, opinions, and experiences. The assessment will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. The online assessment must be completed in one sitting, so please set aside enough time to complete the survey all at one time.
A few reminders:
All regular attenders and covenant partners ages 16+ are invited to take the survey. Some sections ask that only one member of a household complete certain questions; please coordinate within your family.
Paper copies of the survey will be available in the church office or the NEXT Counter for the next two weeks.
You can stay after church and take the survey in the Hospitality Room after service on Sunday the 22nd or 29th (computers will be provided).
Survey responses must be submitted online or returned to the church by Monday, January 30th.
When you are ready, click on this link and begin: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MAPLEVCMVWA
If you have questions, please contact the Pastoral Nominating Committee at PNC@maplevalleychurch.org or check in with us at the NEXT counter after services on Sundays.
Many, many thanks,
The Pastoral Nominating Committee
Meet the PNC
Prayer Request: For God to lead us in this process and for patience as we wait upon the Lord for his will and plan to come to fruition.
Prayer Request: That we will be good listeners so that we can hear God as He speaks to us, and that we would trust Him through this process.
Prayer Request: That I would listen with humility to my church family and pray with expectancy for the new Pastor that God has been preparing to lead us.
Prayer Request: That our church family can unite to bring a new pastor into our body who is led by the Holy Spirit.
Prayer Request: That God would show His provision even in ways that we may not expect it. That we could be willing to trust in Him when it doesn’t make sense. And that we would rejoice in worship every opportunity we can.
Prayer Request: To follow God’s lead in the search and discern God’s choice for our next head pastor.
Prayer Request: Pray for patience and clear, God-centered focus in our church as we move forward. May we let God lead us, rather than have us trying to lead ourselves.
Prayer Request: Please pray for the Lord to lead the PNC and our church through every step of this transition. May the Holy Spirit heal and prepare our hearts and church for new leadership. In addition, for Jesus to be preparing the right candidate to lead and serve our church.
Prayer Request: Please pray for wisdom for the PNC as we seek the Lord’s guidance for our next Senior Pastor. Please pray for the body at MVC that we will humble ourselves and seek the Lord as he leads us through this time of transition.
Prayer Request: That I will faithfully represent the will of God and what he has in store for the people of this congregation.
Prayer Request: My request is simple: sensitivity to God’s leading and prompting throughout this process, for me individually, for us as a committee, for us as a church, and for whomever the Lord would be calling to us!
After moving to Maple Valley in 2011, my wife and I tried many churches in the area. In 2014 my wife and I attended MVC for the first time and I felt that this is the church God was calling us to. At Easter in 2015 we became covenant partners. We have two children who also know this as our home church. I have volunteered in worship (tech team) and youth ministry. My participation in the PNC is the fulﬁllment of my commitment to our church and to ensuring we continue to have biblical theological preaching and study.
Prayer Request: For God to lead us to the right pastor in a timely manner. That the new pastor will ﬁt as the missing piece to our church's new leadership team and that the transition would happen smoothly. Also, please pray for my family, as this process will be taking some extra time away from the
