ELDER SELECTION PROCESS
The Elder selection process begins in a few weeks. Starting in October, you will have a chance to submit the names of men to serve.
The submission of names should be done prayerfully, before the Lord. Ask God to impress you with the names of the men whom He wants to serve His kingdom via this body in this role at this time.
The role of Elder is one of oversight and shepherding. The New Testament says, “Be on guard for yourselves and for the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He has purchased with His own blood” (Acts 20:28). The word translated, overseer, gives us the word bishop or elder.
The Elders of Morningside provide oversight in management and pastoral care. The role requires a call of God and the process calls for your involvement.
So, please begin praying now. Seek the living God as to the men that He is calling to fill the role at this time. The submission of names begins the first Sunday of October.
