gracespring Bible Church Elder Nomination
gracespring Family:

As an Elder-led church body, we have an opportunity to gather together and be instructed in God's Word together, worship our Savior together, and love and serve one another through so many opportunities on Sundays and throughout the week. Thank you for being such a wonderful congregation to lead and serve with and grow with.

We have several Elders whose terms are expiring at the end of 2019, so we are asking for nominations from the congregation of qualified men, according to 1 Timothy 3:1-13, Titus 1:6-9, & 1 Peter 5:1-3 to consider serving in leadership as an Elder over this body. Please prayerfully consider men who you feel are Scripturally qualified and desire leadership (1 Tim. 3:1) and nominate them using this form.

Thank you for your help as we seek to edify Christ's local church here at gracespring with godly leaders and as we seek to serve all of you to the best of our ability.
