Dr. Sherouse convened the following group, which began meeting in February, to help him prayerfully and thoughtfully discern what would be the best Transition plan to recommend to the church: Betsy Beamer, Emily Boddy, Sallie Cook, Ralph Costen, Brydon DeWitt, Grayson Harding, Virgil Hazelett, Kathy LaPlante, Wayne LaPlante, Bob Lewis, Todd Mawyer, Tom Mitchell, David Moore and Bob Riley. He also enlisted Bill Wilson of the Center for Healthy Churches to serve as a Process Coach for this discernment process.
