Dear Twin Oaks School and Church community,

The Head of School Search Committee and the School Board thank you for your prayers and support over the past months. We are highly encouraged by the applications received and the conversations that have taken place with potential candidates.

From the beginning, the search committee has been dedicated to seeking the Lord’s direction and trusting His timing in the process of identifying the new Head of School. We strive to follow the Lord’s leading as we look for our new leader.

Sherry Blough and Debbie Stair will continue as our interim Heads of School for the 2017-2018 school year. We are grateful for the fantastic work they have accomplished this past year and believe the Lord will use them mightily in the 2017-2018 school year.

The search committee is focused on having a new Head of School in place for the 2018-2019 school year. Sherry and Debbie have graciously agreed to assist the new Head of School to ensure a smooth and seamless transfer of leadership.

Please continue to keep the Head of School search process in your prayers. Particularly, please pray for the following:

· Praise Christ Jesus for His perfect timing, even though we do not always understand or agree with it. Pray we remember that He is wiser than we are.

· Praise God for the great connections, conversations, and camaraderie among the search committee.

· Thank our Lord for providing such a wonderful dual gift in Sherry and Debbie and their willingness to serve.

· Continue to keep our future Head of School in your prayers and ask that God would bring the right person to us at the right time.

· Pray for continued wisdom for the Search Committee, the Board, and the Session, as well as patience for us all as we wait on God’s perfect timing.

· Pray for wisdom and discernment as we consider various candidates. Pray that we will continuously seek and follow the Lord’s lead.

This committee has a very important calling to answer, and, with God’s help, we will identify the next Head of School at Twin Oaks.

In His service,

The Head of School Search Committee & Twin Oaks Christian School Board
