There is no set number of elders, and the current board is always praying and considering additional elders as the church continues to grow. New elders are selected by the current board of elders, and the church body has an opportunity, prior to ordination of a new elder, to bring forth reasonable concern or agreement with the qualifications of the proposed elder. Once ordained, an elder remains on the board as long as he has a heart for eldership, effectively fulfills his responsibilities, and adheres to the qualifications of an elder set forth in 1 Timothy 3:2-7 and Titus 1:6-9.


This past weekend, one of our governing elders, Stephen Jones, presented Tom Merritt as a candidate for a board position. Please watch Stephen’s video (left) for more information, and you are welcome to read the letter referenced from the video as well. For questions and comments, email [email protected].
