After 40 years of service and 12 years as Senior Pastor of Broadview Missionary Baptist Church (BMBC), Pastor Marvin G. Parker has announced his plans to retire, effective April 2019.
We thank God for his years of faithful service. As a result, in accordance to our Church Constitution (Article III, Section 4), the BMBC Pulpit Search Committee has been created to nominate our next Senior Pastor for the BMBC membership to approve by vote.
The BMBC Pulpit Search Committee members will begin the initial phase of seeking the Lord concerning who He is calling as our church’s next Pastor. We are asking that all of our members pray for God to send the right person to replace our shepherd. The Pastor’s search process will be covered with prayer from start to finish.
The BMBC Pulpit Search Committee consists of members who have spiritual depth, a broad vision for the church and are prayer warriors who seek the Lord’s guidance and wisdom, above all else. As we go forward, the BMBC Pulpit Search Committee is dedicated to making the search process transparent to all members.
The goal of the committee is to engage members and help them understand that the committee is humbled, feeling a strong responsibility to the congregation. As faithful stewards, the committee intends to share plans online, as a way to keep everyone informed. Additionally, the committee will utilize The Voice newsletter and periodic reports on Sunday morning.
The BMBC Pulpit Search Committee is determined to seek God’s kingdom and pursue God’s will for BMBC, following His scriptures in the search for our new pastor.
