Each year, we invite our church members to nominate potential Elders, Deacons, and Nominating Committee members.
Elders oversee, shepherd, and serve our church from a big picture perspective. Deacons serve in a variety of roles including benevolence, finance, and facilities. The Nominating Committee interviews and evaluates nominees for these roles and makes recommendations to the Elders and the church.
Nominees must have been a member at First Free Church for one year at the time they are elected in the annual meeting in February. The biblical qualifications for Elder are found in 1 Timothy 3:1-13 and Titus 1:6-9. The biblical qualifications for Deacon are found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13.
Nominations are due September 30th for all roles. Please prayerfully consider who you could nominate for these important roles
and check with the person you are considering before submitting their name.
