The Search Committee : A Review

The Search Committee


Tim Owens

A Review

People are broken - whether they are member of a church or not, whether they are members of a search committee or not, or whether they are pastors looking for a place to serve. Tim Owens understood this as he wrote The Search Committee.

The book draws the reader in - I became attached in small ways to each member of the search committee and to others. I found tears as Pastor John found his voice anew and as Matt realized the grace he was allowed to show to Julie. I cried for Dot and Bill as they each experienced loss in their unique ways. As Pastor John says in one sermon, these events are all evidence of the brokeness that is part of the human race. And it is for this brokeness that Christ gave his life.

God is not about meeting perfect people - God reaches out to imperfect, broken people, and uses them where they are. And when he does, amazing things can happen. This is the story of The Search Committee.
