ENC Seeks Recommendations for Nominees

The Book of Order states that “Elders should be persons of faith, dedication, and good judgment. Their manner of life should be a demonstration of the Christian Gospel both within the church and in the world (Chapter 6, section 3)."

In compliance with a motion approved by the Session, a committee has been established to nominate 10 adult church members for election to the Session for a three-year term and two youth members to serve a one-year term beginning January 2020. Please give prayerful consideration to any church member(s) whose name(s) you would like to submit to the Elder Nominating Committee (ENC). The deadline for nominations is June 30.

To suggest a name, please complete the form below and state ways in which the person’s leadership potential and dedication to Covenant qualify him or her for service as Elder. This information will enable the ENC to consider knowledgeably and prayerfully all whose names are submitted.

You may also download and print the form, which can be mailed, emailed, handed to any member of the ENC, or placed in the offering plate. (Having trouble? Click here for the PDF version of the form).
