Each year, we as church members are able to nominate leaders to be Elders and Deacons. These key volunteer leaders are vital to our pursuit of God's vision. It takes changed leaders reaching out, to impact our church. 

During this process be in prayer. Pray for the current Elders, Deacons and nominees as they work through the selection process. And pray God guides and leads you as you nominate men and women for these leadership positions.
