On June 4, 2017 Pastor Kyle Claunch read a letter aloud to the congregation letting them know of an opportunity he has been given to join the Systematic Theology Faculty of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. His final acceptance of this position is contingent upon the church voting to affirm his calling and to allow him to go to a part time capacity at Highland Park and still remain the Lead Pastor. On June 10 there was a Town Hall meeting to allow Kyle to fully lay out his vision for the change including the hiring of an additional Pastor of Missions and Adult Discipleship, as well as allow the church to ask questions. On June 24 the church will vote on this matter in a special called business meeting after the morning service.
On this page you will find links to all relevant information regarding this potential change to our leadership structure. If you have any questions, Pastor Kyle is available to speak on phone, email, or in private meetings. Please contact the church office to setup an appointment if you would like to meet with him.
