Piedmont Community Church names Schibsted Senior Pastor

On Sunday, March 6, the congregation of Piedmont Community Church overwhelmingly voted to call Dr. Steve Schibsted as their new Senior Pastor.

The vote came after Schibsted served 14 months as Transitional Pastor, following Dr. William McNabb, who retired September 2020 after 18 years of service.

A Pastor Nominating Committee was commissioned by the Board of Trustees in August of 2021 to conduct a search. The committee of eight church members was chaired by Eric Behrens and Zookie Todd.

Following research and deliberations, the committee unanimously recommended to the Board of Trustees that Steve Schibsted become the Senior Pastor. The Board concurred and formally nominated Schibsted. His election eliminates a source of uncertainty about the future and enables the church to build on the momentum created over the last year.

“I want to thank Piedmont Church for their confidence,” Schibsted said. “I will do the very best that I can by God’s grace. Let’s get to work!”
