The image the Bible uses for leadership over the local church is one of humility and being subject to one another. It’s a model of leadership that involves exercising oversight, patiently guiding, and being an example, not seeking to be dominant or controlling.

Elder Selection Process
- Church members submit elder nominations by December 15 of each year.
- Elders determine nominees to be recommended to the congregation for review and consideration.
- Church members provide feedback to the Elders regarding the nominees.
- Elders review all congregational feedback and then by unanimous vote present new elders to be affirmed by the congregation at the Annual Meeting in May of each year.
Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. –Acts 20:28
