Pastor Search

As of May 19, 2019, Pastor Dave Mowry will be taking a position in Spokane, WA as the District Superintendent for the Northwest District Church of the Nazarene. Because of Pastor Dave’s departure, we are on the search for a new pastor. This page will be periodically updated with news as our church board works alongside of our District Superintendent, Pastor Scott Shaw, to find our next pastor.

As our Church Board searches for our next Pastor, they desire input from everyone in the church. Click the button below to fill out a short survey to provide our board with some helpful information as go through the pastoral search process. This survey will be available until June 5, 2019.

Dear Twin Falls Church of the Nazarene,
We are incredibly grateful to Pastor Dave and Melissa for sharing their lives with us, investing in us, and leading us over the last 7 years. Although we are sad they are leaving, we know they are pursuing God’s call in obedience. We, too, desire God’s will for this church and believe that God is already preparing us for what He has in store for us next. To this end, below outlines a few important updates to be aware of.
The search for a new pastor has begun. This is a formal and structured process governed by the Intermountain District of the Church of the Nazarene. As such, the entire process is overseen and facilitated by the District Superintendent, Scott Shaw. Our church board recently met with Scott to review the steps involved and officially start the transition. It is important to note that Scott will be intimately involved in providing ongoing support and guidance to the church board throughout the entire process. While the main goal is to find and onboard a new pastor, the church board is already taking steps to ensure continuity of operations, maintain financial stability, and minimize disruption to ministry and support services. More details will be shared as developments occur. Please be in prayer as we seek God’s clear direction.
SUNDAY, MAY 12 – During services on Sunday, May 12, we plan to take a love offering for Pastor Dave and Melissa. This is a great opportunity to help us express our deep gratitude and appreciation to Dave and Melissa for the investment they have made in this church.
SUNDAY, MAY 19 – May 19 will be Pastor Dave and Melissa’s last Sunday with us. Immediately following the evening service on May 19, we will have an informal time of fellowship, eat some cake, and fill a basket with cards. We will also present the love offering to Dave and Melissa to celebrate our journey with them. Please join us for a time of celebration, bring a funny (or serious) card, and enjoy some cake as we send them on their way.
In Christ,
Twin Falls Nazarene Church Board
