Step Eight: Covenant with the congregation to support the PNC

Invite the appropriate people to come up with a meaningful way for the congregation to demonstrate their support during the pastor search—see one creative idea below. Depending on your tradition, this may take the form of a covenant. 

Sample covenant: 

Committed to Community
Joined together to trust God for our future
To pray for our leaders
To open our doors to the community
To serve the needs of others, and
To welcome new pastoral leadership
As God provides.
