Each year we have the privilege to elect our leadership for the upcoming year. A congregational-led nominating committee submits a list of eligible candidates for leadership to be voted upon at the annual meeting. The current committee is seeking nominations from the congregation for the offices of Elder & Deacon and for next year’s Nominating Committee.
Please give prayerful consideration to your suggestion of a person to be considered by the committee for nomination.
Deacons are elected and ordained from within the congregation to lead the congregation in compassionate service.
At Central, the deacons are the front-line for providing financial, material and spiritual support to the congregation and community. Deacons typically serve three-year terms.
Elders are elected and ordained from within the congregation to give spiritual guidance, shepherd, teach, pray and set direction.
At Central, elders are male and female, serve three-year terms and also function as trustees.
The Nominating Committee is a congregational committee responsible for recommending ruling elders and deacons from members of the congregation.
