Recommend an Officer

The Officer Nominating Committee (ONC) requests your recommendations as it seeks to nominate men and women to serve as elders for our congregation. All officers serve after the pattern of Jesus who came not to be served, but to serve. (Matthew 20:28).

2018 Officer Nominating Commitee consists of Chandler Phillips, Active Elder (Moderator), Bob Glascow, Active Elder (Vice-Moderator), Sean Weigler (Deacon Moderator), Martha Lou Beaird, Martha Hooper, Ron Johnson, Casey Sinclair, Judy Werner, and Lisa Wilkins.

The Officer Nominating Committee is requesting recommendations for elder.

FOR THIS YEAR ONLY, the Deacon Ministry will not be requesting recommendations for deacon consideration. Deacons have shifted from a Parish-model ministry to a new Service Team Ministry, just introduced in January 2018. Current deacons will be working toward fine-tuning the twenty newly formed Service Teams. Nominations will be taken in 2019 but this year will be one of solidifying the serving aspects of each of the Teams to better care for and serve our members and beyond.

Deadline for Recommendations is Sunday February 4, 2018.

Whom Should I Recommend?

Elders: People committed to fulfilling the role of an elder including investing the time needed to serve. They are regarded by fellow believers as possessing the essential components of an elder in the areas of character, courage, calling and competence. Competence is essential in the spiritual gifts of discernment, wisdom, teaching and leadership. The presence of other gifts such as administration, encouragement and mercy greatly enhance elder effectiveness. Candidates for elder must be willing to submit to the principles of governance adopted by the Session.
