Before you begin this survey, take some time to pray to the Lord for wisdom, spiritual discernment and vision for the mission of the church within the context of your ministry. While you certainly have personal preferences concerning mission and ministry, the real question for you to ask is, “Lord, how will You use me and this congregation to build Your kingdom?”

After you complete this survey, ask for the Lord’s blessing on this process as you and the members of Faith search for pastoral leadership that the Lord has already selected to serve. (Acts 1:24)

This survey will take only a few minutes to complete. By so doing, you will be assisting the call committee and the president of the Texas District, LCMS in identifying an appropriate list of candidates for the congregation to consider for the person who will serve as your next pastor.

You may complete this survey in one of two ways:

  • On-line (at any computer at the home, office, or church); or
  • Printed copy (available from the call committee and is printable from this site).

On-line Survey When you are prepared to take this survey online, you will need to click HERE. When you do, a page will appear with directions for filling out the survey.

Printed Copy When you have completed the survey in printed form, please return the completed document to the call committee.

  • Click Pastor Profile Survey. A pdf formatted document will appear. Then print the file; or
  • Ask for a copy from the chairman of the call committee or another designated member.

This survey will need to be completed no later than November 20, 2022. After this date, the survey will be closed and the responses will be tallied.

When the congregation has completed responding, a meeting will be set up with the members of Faith, Rev. Jon Thomas (circuit visitor) and Mr. Martin Schardt (Area B Congregation Support Specialist) to review the survey results and begin the next phase in the calling process.

Mission Resources The mission of the Texas District is to strengthen congregations to reach the lost, disciple the saved and care for people – locally and globally.
