Changes to the Call Process
Under the revised WLC Constitution, the following changes have been made to streamline the call process:
- As elected representatives of the congregation, Church Council assumes responsibility for forming a Search Committee and approving a job description, tasks that no longer require initiation and approval through a congregational meeting.
- Once a candidate is identified, congregational voting will be open for two Sundays and will require a 2/3 voter approval.
