First West formally announces new pastor nomination

Posted: Updated:
WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - After 15 months, First West may soon have a new senior pastor.

On Sunday, youth minister Michael Wood was formally nominated by the search committee.

Committee chairman AJ Burns said the process took so long because they received about 100 resumes from all over the country.

"We've recognized he has been on our staff for five years. We have entrusted our youth to him for the past five years and he is an anointed minister and we are really excited to make the recommendation," Burns said.

Several meetings are scheduled throughout the week for church members to talk the decision over.

Next Sunday, church members will vote in a secret ballot and then the church will formally announce its new pastor.
