Trailhead Church Eldership Process Self-Nomination Form
Thank you for your interest in Trailhead Church. A few notes: You can only nominate yourself and only you can fill this form out for yourself. If you believe a man should be nominated, talk to him to encourage him to nominate himself. Those who fill this form out are requesting that they be considered as potential elder candidates at Trailhead Church. Filling out this application does not guarantee that a man will be invited into the process. You will be contacted sometime in the next month to discuss the next steps. Thank you for your commitment to Trailhead Church.

"No one would venture to undertake the building of a house were he not an architect, nor will any one attempt the cure of sick bodies who is not a skilled physician; but even though many urge him, will beg off, and will not be ashamed to own his ignorance; and shall he who is going to have the care of so many souls entrusted to him, not examine himself beforehand?" —John Chrysostom
