Each year, we as church members are able to nominate leaders to be Elders and Deacons. The nominees will attend information meetings, fill out an extensive questionnaire, and go through an interview process. These key volunteer leaders are vital to our pursuit of the vision God has called us to. It takes changed leaders reaching out, to impact our church. 

During this process be in prayer. Pray for the present elders as we work through the selection process. Pray for the nominees that God will lead them throughout this process. And pray God will guide and lead you as you nominate men and women for these leadership positions.

Below are the specific position descriptions as well as the voting timeline.
