Leadership matters. Spiritual leadership is important to discern God’s call, maintain a clear vision, and provide healthy oversight and accountability for our congregations. Each year, our congregations are asked to nominate qualified, God-honoring leaders to serve in the roles of Elder and Deacon. This selection process requires prayerful consideration to discern those God is calling to provide spiritual leadership who exhibit the qualifications found in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. In our multi-site structure, Pastoral Elders and Deacons serve on each campus while Collegiate Consistory Elders and Deacons serve in oversight over our whole family of churches. Each campus nominates and approves its own Elders and Deacons.
Nominations forms will be made available beginning January 8, 2017, at the Information Center, by download here, or you can also submit nominations online by clicking here. These must be completed and submitted no later than Sunday, February 5, 2017. Names will be submitted to the current Campus Leadership Team, and then sent to the Nominations Team for prayer, discernment, interviews, and nomination to the Collegiate Consistory for approval for a single slate. This slate will then be presented to the congregation at the Congregational Meeting on Sunday, May 21, 2017.
