Thanks for taking the time to give us your input in recommending this individual to be considered for Eldership.
There are many things that we take into consideration as we go through this process of selecting someone for Eldership.
We encourage you to take some time to read though some scriptural references regarding qualities of an Elder:
1 Timothy 3
1 Thessalonians 2:1-20
1 Peter 5:1-4
Each individual will be carefully and prayerfully considered in the following areas:
CharacterSpiritual MaturitySpiritual Giftedness & FruitfulnessService to the CommunityIntegrity
Please understand that while your individual may possess these qualities - it may not mean they will be selected as an Elder; or even accepted in the final grouping of Elder candidates.
This does not mean they necessarily were lacking in these characteristics but could be due to the other candidate's individual's evaluation, gift mix, over all team fit - or simply out of a response to the Lords leading.
Thanks once again for your thoughts and contributions to this process - we value your prayers and support through this discerning season.
Candidate must be a member of FLV in order to serve as an Elder.The Candidate cannot be related to you.We also ask that you provide the name of another individual that endorses your suggestion. (Non-related)
There are some key areas that we take into account when considering someone for Eldership. Please be specific in addressing your observations and/or experience of the individual in these areas.
Thanks for taking the time to fill this out.
We really appreciate it!
