Pastor Search Team History
In December of 2015, the Parkway congregation voted on the Pastor Search Team to pray over and search for the man God was choosing to be the next Senior Pastor at Parkway. These faithful men and women have been diligently serving in this capacity for over a year, and are grateful for the prayers of the Parkway congregation during this time frame. Here is a brief bio of each member.
Dear Parkway Family,
We are grateful to the Lord that Parkway has called Pastor Derek Futrell as our next Senior Pastor. Our congregation affirmed that calling by a 95% vote of affirmation on Sunday, February 12. Pastor Derek communicated this news to his current church family at Hillcrest Baptist Church on Sunday night, and the church, while sad, received the news well and prayed a prayer of commissioning over Pastor Derek and his family. They will be praying for Pastor Derek and for Parkway during this upcoming transition.
We also thank God for each member of the search team and for their dedication to prayer, God's Word, integrity, and diligence during this entire process. God truly answered all of our prayers and we give God the glory.
Please, be in prayer for Hillcrest as Pastor Derek works with them to establish a transition plan over the next few weeks. Pastor Derek's first Sunday at Parkway will be Sunday, March 19. Thank you for your prayerful support for their family as they transition their home and lives to the Chesterfield area in the coming weeks.
Thank you for all your continued prayers!
