ELDER NOMINATIONS

Weymouth Community Church

At our annual member meeting near the beginning of 2021, you will be asked to vote on anyone presented by the Elders, for the role of Elder in 2021, 2022. Our Elders serve a two-year term, with the option of being nominated, voted on, and then serving a second, consecutive, two-year term. They are then required to sit off the Elder Team, according to our Constitution, for one year before being re-nominated.

Before we get to that vote, however, we are asking that all members of Weymouth Community Church assist our present Elders in identifying who God has prepared to serve as an Elder this next year. As lead pastor, Greg will continue to serve as a non-voting member of the Elder Team. The current Elder Team also consists of:

Pete Golas

Russell Kinnebrew (Team Leader)

Kerry Pixton

Matt Stein

Jason Zabka

Pete is completing his first year of his first 2-year term. Russell is completing the final year of his second, 2-year term; and therefore, is not eligible to be nominated until a year off the Elder team. Kerry Pixton is completing his first year of his first 2-year term. Matt Stein is completing his first year of his first 2-year term. Jason Zabka is completing his second year of his first 2-year term and has chosen not to be nominated for a second term.

You are welcome, as a member of WCC to nominate any other male member of WCC for this role. Please pray, ask the person if he is willing to be nominated, and then give his name to Russell Kinnebrew or the church office. Please have all names in to us by Sunday, November 8th.

As you pray about who God is selecting, please consider the biblical qualifications for an Elder, as described in I Timothy 3 and Titus 1. Keep in mind that these are general character qualities the Elder is pursuing, but that he will not perfectly display these at all times. Can these qualities be seen in his overall character?
