Selection Committee Update

Dear Regina Apostolic Church Family,

On Sunday, January 20th we had a second vote for Pastor Jim Bobst for the position of Lead Pastor of Regina Apostolic Church. Our constitution mandates that a minimum of 75% of the votes cast must be in favor of the candidate. Pastor Jim received 72.5% of the votes.

We want to thank Pastor Jim for his willingness to serve RAC as Lead Pastor, and allowing us to put forward his name twice. We love and honor Pastor Jim and respect and acknowledge his call to ministry by God.

As we continue to seek God for our next Lead Pastor, let us keep our eyes focused on Jesus Christ, who is the Head of the Church. He is the one who will lead us and direct us as we seek His choice for the future of our church.

Our church is still strong in the Lord, and we continue to witness salvations and healings. We are also financially stable and we thank God for His grace during the past 15 months.

Prayers for the church from our Elders:

Our exhortation for the church is below.

May we be like the early church in Acts 2:42 as “they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, and prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs.” May we be the church that is devoted to the word of God to teach us, build solid relationships with each by loving one another, being right with God as we break bread together and spending time with God in prayer and worship.

Then let us be in awe of God’s working in our church with the many stories of transformed lives and healings. We thank God for the leadership He has given us and let us serve together in unity as the body of Christ for His church.

Next Steps:

As we move forward, we have a commitment from Pastor Dan until April 15th even as the leadership will consider what are the next steps for the church’s future. Representatives of the Selection Committee met with the pastors and staff on Tuesday to support them, strengthen them and pray together. We have amazing spirit-filled pastors at RAC, so please continue to pray for them and shower them with love.

The Elders and Board are committed to their responsibility of spiritual and financial leadership in the church, and are working together closely. The Selection Committee is still committed, with prayer and seeking the Lord, to the task of finding the next Lead Pastor for RAC.

We will provide updates to the church throughout the process, and ask for your prayers, patience and support. The Lord is in control, and this situation is not a surprise to him. We believe that we will become a stronger, united church, in position to receive all of God’s richest blessings and to faithfully carry out his work.

Thank You,

The Selection Committee, Board, and Elders of Regina Apostolic Church
