Pastor Sean Scribner Appointed Interim Lead Pastor

From the Chairman of the Board of Stewards:

Rev. Ike Cowell, Conference Superintendent with the Evangelical Methodist Church, appointed Sean Scribner as interim lead pastor with an effective date of April 17, 2017. The Board of Stewards and Pastoral Relations Committee unanimously requested this appointment.

The lead pastor position became vacant as Pastors Bill and Diane Ury accepted God’s call as National Ambassadors of Holiness with the Salvation Army in February of this year. The Ury’s have been with Elizabeth City EMC for four and a half years.

Pastor Sean assumes this position with a calling and a heart to be a lead pastor. He describes his new role as “shepherding and equipping of the saints for the work of ministering to others.”

The Pastoral Relations Committee, in collaboration with the Conference Superintendent, has responsibility for administering the search for a lead pastor.
