Elder Recommendation
Harvest Bible Chapel is an unapologetically elder-led church because we believe this is God's design (Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-5; Acts 14:23). Acts 6:1-6 testifies to the congregation having some kind of hand in nominating those in leadership, and so we also believe that the congregation has a role in the appointing of elders.

Throughout the month of February, we are inviting the congregation of Harvest Bible Chapel Rochester to nominate the men you deem qualified to serve on the board of elders. Prior to recommending anyone, please refresh yourself on what the qualifications of an elder are by reading this document:


And if you would like to do some extra credit work, you can re-listen to our series on Titus preached Spring 2018 here:


After reading through the elder qualifications document, you may proceed to nominating any man whom you see as qualified for the task. Beginning in March, our current elders will begin the process of selecting from your submissions those without any conflicts (ex. non-members, women, discipline issues, etc.) to be interviewed. After the lengthy process of application, interviewing the candidates and their wives, praying, and fasting, we will announce the names of the candidates. Following that, the congregation will have the opportunity to raise any issues with us regarding the candidates. After that we will be able to install our newest set of elders.

If you have any questions at all about the process, please do not hesitate to reach out. You can either contact Dale McIntyre (mcintyre005@me.com) or Pastor Brandon (brandon@harvestroc.org).

Thank you for taking the time to be a part of this process. Please be in prayer for us as we seek the Lord's face in this important season.
