Thank You, Music Minister Search Committee!

Published June 4, 2022 by Nancy McNiel

It is with a great debt of gratitude that I want to thank each of the members of the Music Minister Search Committee:

  • Lauren Benesh
  • David Bernal
  • Kathy Bernal
  • Cathy Edwards
  • Brian Fowler
  • Claire Frazier
  • Cindy Hippel
  • Barbara Kirk
  • Nancy McNiel
  • Susan Moore
  • Melissa Pasche
  • Carol Shattuck
  • Courtney Smith
  • Vince Smith
  • Greg Taylor
  • Kristy Wade-Carroll
  • Steve Wells
  • Trey Westerburg
  • Carolyn Williams

Some of these members represented the Personnel Committee, some represented the Music Ministry, but they all represented South Main Baptist Church. Every one of these members put in hours of work—listening, watching, and reviewing candidates' materials and preparing primary reviewer reports for the committee's consideration. Steve carried the weight of soliciting names of potential candidates and of pre-interviewing candidates to determine theological and ministerial fit with South Main. Susan provided great technical and communication support as our staff liaison. Claire, as co-chair, led all of our candidate review sessions and was our musical reviewer extraordinaire. Vince, as secretary, kept us straight with our internal and external web presence, our minutes, our records, and all things data.

We worked hard, we enjoyed each other's company, and we are thrilled to recommend Adam Cogliano unanimously.

To God be the Glory!
