How Officers are Elected

The Officer Nominating Committee (voted on by the congregation during a congregational meeting) nominates Church Officers (Elders and Trustees) by receiving suggested names of members from the congregation, prayerfully prepares a slate of Church Officer nominees, and then presents the nominees to the congregation for election at a congregational meeting.


QUALIFICATIONS FOR OFFICE: The qualifications for Elder are found in Scripture and the EPC Book of Order.


TERMS OF SERVICE AND ELIGIBILITY: Church Officers for these boards are elected for a three-year term of service. After serving two consecutive terms, a Church Officer is ineligible for re-election on the same board for one year, but is eligible to serve on another board. Two immediate family members may not serve on the Session at the same time. However, one may serve on the Session and the other on the Board of Trustees at the same time. “Immediate family member” is defined as a brother, sister, wife, husband, child or parent.


PROCEDURE TO SUGGEST NAMES: Members of the congregation are asked to pray about choosing Church Officers and submit names to the Officer Nominating Committee. Before nominating someone, please ask the nominee if he/she is willing to serve. You may also contact members of the Officer Nominating Committee individually.
