We are very excited to announce that Phil EuBank is the next Senior Pastor of Menlo Church.
Our vision remains strong; we want to lead our generation into a transforming relationship with Jesus and authentic community with each other, so that everyone in the Bay Area can flourish.
The Senior Pastor Search Committee (SPSC) spent hundreds of hours thoroughly reviewing and praying over many candidates. They spent much time considering and vetting candidates who were qualified, each with unique gifts and perspectives, and we are so grateful to each of them for taking the time to go through the process with us. After a thorough process of mutual discernment, the SPSC unanimously and enthusiastically agreed that Phil EuBank has the qualities that we believe will help Menlo Church continue to grow in a thriving community of discipleship.
As the SPSC and Session prayed throughout the months of the search, independent of each other and together, both mutually felt led to seek a prayerful, humble, and articulate Senior Pastor who would love, shepherd, and teach our congregation. Both SPSC and Session shared a vision for someone who would nurture deep devotion and discipleship to Jesus and inspire and equip each member of our community to compassionately and energetically engage with the world around them. Additionally, a fundamental requirement was the candidate's agreement with ECO tenets.
