Nominating Committee

Mission: The mission of the Nominating Committee is to prayerfully consider and recruit nominees to fill positions on the next nominating committee and as active ruling elders on Session.

Committee Responsibilities:

  • Nominate candidates for each annual class of active ruling elders.
  • Nominate candidates to fill active ruling elder vacancies for the remainder of term.

A new class of active ruling elders must be nominated to fill positions on the Session that will be vacant at the end of the calendar year. Committee members accomplish this through knowledge of the members of the congregation and prayerful consideration of their strengths and/or weaknesses. These members then ask these individuals to serve.

  • Nominate members of the congregation to serve on the next nominating committee.

The committee is responsible to the entire congregation and is expected to nominate people with diverse opinions and ideas, who represent the various interests of the whole congregation. Thus, this committee must itself be diverse.

Meetings: on an as-needed basis
