Office of Elder Suggestion Form - Class of 2020

Office of Elder Suggestion Form - Class of 2020
The Church Nominating Committee solicits suggestions regarding persons who should be considered for the office of Elder. The Book of Order, in outlining the qualifications of the Presbyterian Elder, says that Elders "...should be persons of faith, dedication, and good judgment." It further states that the "manner of life" of the Elder should be a "...demonstration of the Christian Gospel, both within the church and in the world." Is the person that you are considering someone who fulfills these qualifications?

Elders are expected to give special attention to the spiritual needs of the people of God within the church and outside the church. Elders are particularly charged with the responsibility to "...visit and comfort and care for the people, with special attention to the poor, the sick, the lonely and those who are oppressed." Is the person that you are considering someone who already exhibits a commitment to this kind of activity?

To assist the Church Nominating Committee in its evaluation of candidates, please provide as much of the following information as possible on the person you wish to suggest to the Committee. (Please fill out a separate online form for each person you suggest.)

Church Nominating Committee: Melinda Coles, Kim Crafton, Kady Folk, Beth Harwell, Geren Moor, Mike Sandwith, Gary Shockley (Chair), Rosemary Verrall, and Patrick Warfield.

The deadline for submitting suggestions is Sunday, October 16, 2016.
