Officer Nominations

The most important responsibility that a church and its members have in the life of the church, in addition to loving God with all your heart and with all your soul and mind, is in choosing its pastors and its church officers.

To submit a recommendation for a Deacon or Elder, complete the form below.  Or you may download the form (click here), and turn it in to any member of the Officer Nominating Committee or the church office.

The Officer Nominating Committee members are Lee Barfield, Chair, Stuart Campbell, Vice Chair, Anne Clark, Helen Dale, Adelaide Davis, Gus Puryear, Hobbs Yarbrough, Adam DeVries, Staff Liaison, and Todd Jones, Staff Liaison.

Consider in your recommendation references from the Presbyterian Book of Order: “To those called to exercise special functions in the church — deacons, ruling elders, and teaching elders — God gives suitable gifts for their various duties.  In addition to possessing the necessary gifts and abilities, those who undertake particular ministries should be persons of strong faith, dedicated discipleship, and love of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.  Their manner of life should be a demonstration of the Christian gospel in the church and in the world.  They must have the approval of God’s people and the concurring judgment of a council of the church.”  (G-2.0104a)

The deadline for recommending nominees is June 30, 2018.
