The Joint Needs Assessment Committee (JNAC) has been working on your behalf developing a needs assessment report (job description) so that we may begin the search process for a new minister. As part of the process we are asking all our church families to provide input into the characteristics/skills that you feel are important in a new minister. The committee has developed a short survey to assist in gathering your feedback. We therefore ask you and each family member including children to complete and provide your feedback on the survey. Feel free to share the survey with others you think may also be interested in completing one. We ask that the survey be returned by November 24, 2016.You may also provide your input by telephoning Larry Allin (905-876-4285) or email at
