The Nominating Committee prepares the slate of new committee members to present at our November Presbytery Meeting each year. We solicit suggestions for elders, pastors, and church leaders from our member churches.
A description can be found on the Nominations Committee Suggestions Form for each committee. Committee members are asked to serve at least one three-year term. Committees typically meet once a month. You do not have to make a suggestion for each committee.
Some factors to consider when suggesting yourself or others to serve as church officers:
- Church involvement: regular attendance at worship, active participation in church activities, offices held and leadership rendered, evidence of commitment to the church and its mission, understanding of and commitment to Presbyterian polity.
- Christian life: evidence of grace and compassion in common life, evidence of maturity and effectiveness of ministry in the world.
- Personal qualifications: cooperativeness, willingness to listen, readiness to learn, ability to follow through on assignments, organizational ability, creativity, openness to new ideas, maturity of judgment, freedom to express ideas and thoughts.
- Other factors: occupational background and life experience, service in other organizations, interest in particular causes, offices held and quality of performance in them, education and training in the duties and responsibilities of that office.
