The session is pleased to announce that the Interim Search Committee has completed its work and that the interim pastor for Banner Elk Presbyterian Church has been chosen – and approved by the Presbytery.
The Rev. J. Decherd (Deck) Guess, currently serving in Laurinburg, NC, has accepted the call. He will be preaching for the first time at Banner Elk on August 25th. Before that date there will be several meet-and-greet events for the congregation to get acquainted with Deck and his wife Deb.
Rev. Dr. Ed Donnell will be offering support as Interim Bridge until Rev. Guess arrives on August 19
