We’re asking all who are part of this church family to do the following:
● Spend time in the Word discovering what God has said about Spiritual leadership, and particularly the role of elders in the Church.
● Devote time to prayer, and a period of fasting if you’re able, asking God for wisdom and direction as you consider the names of those you believe are gifted, demonstrate heavenly wisdom (James 3:13-18), and are qualified to serve.
● After you have involved yourself in the process above, please submit names on the forms (see the New Elder Submission Page), before or by Sunday, March 26th. Contact email@example.com for clarifications or questions. Names submitted without your name and email address will not be considered.
● We ask that you not approach men and ask if they’d serve, but instead submit the names of those you’d like to have considered, and the Shepherd discovery team will do the work of approaching and meeting with men who are under consideration.
