Cypress Meadows Community Church Hires Senior Pastor

Cypress Meadows Community Church-1

What does Ring the Bell mean? At Vanderbloemen, we want to celebrate as a team every time we have the honor of helping a church, school, or organization find their perfect candidate to fill a gap in their team and further their ministry. To do that, we have a bell on the wall in our Vanderbloemen office, within hearing distance of the entire team. Every time a candidate is placed, the team members who worked on that search ring the bell so that our team can celebrate!

Ring the bell! Cypress Meadows Community Church found its new Senior Pastor.

In 1981, a horse stable was turned into a church that would one day grow into a large community of faith, hope, and love in Clearwater, Florida. Cypress Meadows Community Church seeks to be known by their hands of hope and love. They were searching for a Senior Pastor to serve alongside them in their efforts to spread the Gospel and better the lives of others. Eric Dunaway was the perfect match for this search.

Eric is devoted to serving and building up the body of Christ. He is passionate about his family, spiritual gifts, and teaching others. Eric has served in various pastoral roles throughout his ministry career and has developed creative, leadership, and preaching skills that we know Cypress Meadows will benefit from. Eric embraces community and enjoys building relationships with others. We are excited about the connections and growth that he will bring to his new church.

"It was a joy to come alongside Pastor Douglas and Cypress Meadows last year to help them create and carry out a succession plan. My joy doubled this year when they allowed me and the Vanderbloemen team to walk them through a search for a new Senior Pastor. Eric and Douglas will serve together for the foreseeable future and then Douglas will hand the baton to Eric and be his biggest cheerleader. This is a win-win for the Kingdom!" - Brian Dunks, Executive Search Consultant

Eric and his family are excited about their move from Auburn, Indiana to Clearwater. Cypress Meadows Community Church is excited to welcome the Dunaways to their church family. Their community and kingdom impact will excel under Eric’s leadership. We are confident in what is to come for the church, the Clearwater community, and the Dunaway family.
