Search Team
Bright Hope's Search Team consists of the current deacons.  We have been hard at work in the Pre-Search process.  Our main focus has been, and will continue to be, spending time on our knees before God seeking His wisdom, His desires, His plan, and His purposes for Bright Hope.  Please join us in praying for: the Search Team, Pastor Paul & Susi, our new pastor, and our church family.

As part of our Pre-Search process, we ask that each member and regular attender entering Grade 7 and older, complete the survey below. This survey needs to be submitted by June 17, 2018 in order that the Search Team can utilize input in developing a Pastoral Profile and a Church Profile by June 30, 2018. (Update:  We are on our third meeting in developing these Profiles...We are planning to reveal the profiles during the week of July 15th.    Also, thank you to the many who submitted a survey.   Your input has been very helpful and valuable in developing the profiles!)
