Champion Forest Baptist Church has a clearly defined process in our bylaws (5.08):
The Senior Pastor shall be chosen and called by the Members of the Church when a vacancy occurs. The Committee on Committees shall choose eighteen nominees that are reflective of the Church membership to serve on the Pulpit Committee. These men and women shall be faithful in attendance, tithers, Godly believers and involved actively in the Church. The Secretary shall then give notice of a Special Business Meeting and list the names of the nominees at least one week prior to such meeting. The five men and four women nominees receiving the most votes, respectively, will serve on the Pulpit Committee (“Pulpit Committee”).
After the Pulpit Committee is selected by the Voting Members, the Committee on Committees will select a Chairman and Vice-Chairman. The Pulpit Committee will prayerfully seek a Senior Pastor and make the recommendation to the Members of the Church. The Pulpit Committee will give the Members at least one week’s notice of a Special Business Meeting prior to voting on the nominee. The Voting Members shall vote by secret ballot at the Special Business Meeting during the weekend worship services. The Voting Members must elect the Senior Pastor with at least an affirmative vote of 75% of those present and voting.
We still believe that God is on His throne, that His Word will not return void, and we exist to fulfill the Great Commission and the Great Commandment in our generation. That has been the heartbeat of CFBC consistently for the past 49 years. Our God-given mission continues.
