Deacon Nominations and Life Deacons Are Happening in September


It is time to kick off our deacon nomination and selection process. We have a process for the church to nominate Deacons and a separate process for Life Deacon nominations (for Life Deacons only). A summary of how Deacon Nominations work follows:

Deacon Nominations will be accepted from church members from September 10-18, 2023.

Each church member can nominate up to 6 candidates.

  • Top 3 candidates nominated by the congregation are included in slate
  • Board of Deacon confirms the slate of nominees to be presented to the congregation
  • Slate presented to congregation for affirmation vote during worship
