Special Business Vote

Shakopee Lead Campus Pastor: Calling and Member Approval
Voting closes Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 4:00pm

We are pleased to provide this notice of the upcoming Special Business Vote for the purpose of calling Kenny White to be Shakopee Lead Campus Pastor.

Voting will take place over the next 30 days. Article II, Section 2 of the Friendship Church Bylaws grants church members sole authority to hire Lead Campus Pastors presented by the Calling Team.


The Board of Trustees of Friendship Church recommends members vote to approve the hire of Kenny White as Shakopee Lead Campus Pastor based on the unanimous affirmative declaration of the Calling Team, Lay Elders, Board of Trustees and the Leadership Team.

Kenny currently serves at Cheyenne Hills Church in Cheyenne, Wyoming as Associate Pastor where he is a member of the leadership team and a frequent speaker on Sunday mornings. The senior pastor of Cheyenne Hills Church fully supports Friendship Church calling Kenny and will be communicating to their board and church body telling them that Kenny is recommended as a candidate for Friendship Church’s Lead Campus Pastor position as appropriate.

We sincerely hope that you will plan to participate by either voting online or by absentee ballot available at the Welcome Centers of both the Shakopee and Prior Lake Campuses. Please give this a high priority due to the impact a new Shakopee Lead Campus Pastor will have on our ministry throughout Scott County.

Due to current restrictions related to COVID-19, there will not be a meeting. The voting will take place over the next 30 days online, or by delivering a ballot to the Prior Lake Campus, or by mailing it in. Please click on the links to see the related information.
