Leader Nomination

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.

For an overseer, as God’s administrator, must be blameless, not arrogant, not hot-tempered, not addicted to wine, not a bully, not greedy for money, but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, righteous, holy, self-controlled, holding to the faithful message as taught, so that he will be able both to encourage with sound teaching and to refute those who contradict it.

Deacons

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.

The Nominating Committee is a congregational committee responsible for recommending ruling elders and deacons from members of the congregation.
