New WPC Minister Candidate – Francois L. Lacroix

Dear Friends,
It is with great joy and anticipation that your PNC introduces Pastor Francois L. Lacroix, who is our unanimous recommendation for Pastor/Head of Staff.  We believe that through the search process, the Holy Spirit has led Wallingford Presbyterian Church and Francois Lacroix together.  At the August 4 congregational meeting, you will decide whether to accept our recommendation.  Click on “a short biographical summary” to read about Francois’s background and faith journey.
Because Francois comes to us from outside the Philadelphia Presbytery, he was required to receive approval from a Presbytery commission to be admitted into the Presbytery before we could announce him to you.  That involved an examination of Francois’s theological and ethical suitability. The examination took place on July 18, and as we expected, he was approved.
The PNC will present Francois and his wife Cyndi at a meet and greet reception in our Reception Room on Saturday, August 3, between 2 and 4 p.m.  Then, on Sunday, August 4, Francois will preach and help lead worship at the 10:00 a.m. service.  Following the service, the congregational meeting will convene to consider and act on our recommendation that Francois be called as our Pastor/Head of Staff. Finally, there will be a reception in place of the normal coffee hour following the congregational meeting.
Between now and August 4, you may feel free to ask any of the PNC members about the process, and why we feel Francois is the pastor called by the Holy Spirit to lead our church.
It has been our pleasure and honor to represent you as your Pastor Nominating Committee.  We look forward to sharing in the exciting transition as we move into the future of WPC.
In Christ’s service,
Your Pastor Nominating Committe
