Pastor Nominating Committee

Fairmount Presbyterian Church Welcomes Rev. Ryan Wallace!

On Sunday, December 5, 2021, the congregation of Fairmount Presbyterian Church approved the call of the Rev. Ryan Wallace to be Fairmount’s 10th Senior Pastor in our 105 year history. Pastor Ryan will begin his service at Fairmount in late February. Please join us in praising God for this exciting transition and in praying for our new pastor, his wife Amanda, and their children Mae, Silas and Cece.

The formation of the Pastoral Nominating Committee was approved on Sunday, May 2, 2021, during a Congregational Meeting.

The Pastoral Nominating Committee will update the congregation on their progress on this webpage. Check back frequently!

The congregation has experienced multiple transitions in the last twenty-five years, and has been challenged by staff changes, levels of stewardship, periods of moderate conflict, major changes in Christian religious education and membership decline. To create a unified, enlivening path forward, Session engaged an outside consultant to assist us in doing an extensive Mission Study. The consultant was the Rev. Gregg Carlson from the organization, Convergence, formerly the Center for Progressive Renewal. In 2020 Mission Working Groups were created for this purpose.
