LEAD PASTOR UPDATE


WHAT IS HAPPENING

We’re glad you asked.  Our Pastors Kevin and Misty Caudle have resigned their roles here at Christian Life Assembly and will be leaving Tehachapi at the end of August or when we fill the role of Lead Pastor.  

We have assembled a Pastoral Search Team that is meeting weekly to search for a new Pastoral Candidate for us.  Once they narrow that search to the candidate they believe that God has for Christian Life Assembly they will forward that name to our Board of Deacons and Trustees for approval.

Once we have Board approval, that candidate will present their ministry to the congregation and our membership will meet to vote for our new Pastor.  

This is an involved and difficult process for everyone involved.  Please be in prayer for CLA as well as the Pastoral Search Team and the Deacons and Trustees.  We’ve created this page to keep you informed of our progress so you can see where we are in that process.  Should you have any further questions about the process please email Kate at office@clatehachapi.com and she will forward your question to the team.  

Thank you for praying.  We’re excited about what the future holds for CLA and we’re looking forward to the person who will lead us forward.

The mission of our church remain the same: to introduce people to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.


WHO'S IN CHARGE NOW?

At this point everything is remaining as it always has.  Kevin and the CLA Staff are leading the day in and day out ministries and operations of the church.  The Deacon and Trustee Board continues to oversee the fiduciary responsibilities of the church.
