Our Church Officers
Meet the elders and deacons of SAPC
Church officers are nominated by our Nominating Committee. The nominees are then elected by the active membership during a congregational meeting. Ruling Elders on the Session and Deacons on the Diaconate ordinarily serve 3-year terms with the exception of the Youth Elder, who serves a 1-year term.

Search for a New Pastor
We are currently on the search for a new senior pastor. Yes, it is a bit complicated. No, it does not move quickly, only deliberately…but always with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. If you have any questions, please feel free to please call our office at (919) 847-1913 for more information.
The Interim Pastor spends time getting to know the Saint Andrews community and understanding its culture, ministry and mission.
A team organized by the Interim Pastor oversees administration of the presbytery’s required congregational self-assessment inventory, known as the Church Assessment Tool (CAT). All members are invited to participate, and the results will inform the upcoming pastor search process.
A Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) is elected by the congregation. Their sole responsibility is to identify and call the next installed pastor. The PNC drafts a Ministry Information Form (MIF). This is the “resume” of the church and serves the purpose of giving prospective installed pastors an understanding of both the job description and SAPC’s ministry and mission.
The completed Ministry Information Form is submitted to both the Presbytery of New Hope and the Session for approval, then circulated at the national level.
January '21 & forward
The PNC meets regularly to receive and review Personal Information Forms, or PIFs (resumes of interested pastors), conduct thorough interviews with prime candidates, and ultimately (by way of the Presbytery and Session) present a candidate to the congregation for approval.
At Saint Andrews we seek to honor God in the senior pastor search process through an intentional search process. Follow our progress below!
- VCongregation votes on and welcomes new senior pastor
- VPNC searches for and selects a senior pastor
- ZCongregation elects a pastor nominating committee (PNC)
- ZInterim pastor is called to Saint Andrews
- ZSession creates interim pastor nominating committee
