We are partnering with Chemistry Staffing to walk us through the pastoral search process. They will assist in evaluating Turning Point Church and where we would like to go in our next chapter, searching for and interviewing potential candidates, and finalize the hiring process. Throughout the process they will evaluate candidates based on five traits:
- Theology - Does the candidate believe the way we believe on both core and secondary issues?
- Culture - Does the candidate fit our community, church, and culture?
- Personality - Does the candidate play well with others? Are they likeable?
- Skill - Does the candidate have the talents and abilities we need to do a good job?
- Chemistry - Is this a person that will fit on our team? Do we want to do life AND ministry together?

Current Step Information
Over the last two months we have worked side by side with Chemistry Staffing to find our next lead pastor. After multiple weeks of interviews, we are excited to announce that we have extended an offer to Steven Knight to become our next lead pastor at Turning Point Church. So what happens next? On Sunday, June 4, Steven will be at Turning Point Church delivering the message and meeting with the leadership team. This is also a chance for all TPC Partners and attendees to meet Steven. We do this step to evaluate the chemistry between Steven and Turning Point Church and ensure it is strong in person, just as it was in the Zoom interviews. Stevens wife, Katie, and their kids will join us as well. After Sunday, June 4, we will have an update as to the decision made between Steven and the Turning Point Church Executive Leadership Team.
