November is Nomination Month for Elders, Deacons & DeaconessesNovember 2012
We are looking for new Elders, Deacons and Deaconesses!
With the addition of the Downtown congregation, we are thrilled to be able to engage all three of our congregations in serving our city. Because of our continued growth, we are eager for your help in identifying new servant-leaders who will respond to the needs of our congregants.
As Redeemer’s mercy ministry, the members of the Diaconate serve and provide practical assistance to those in our congregations who are facing challenging situations (Acts 6:1-4 and 1 Timothy 3:8-13). Elders serve on the Session and they provide spiritual leadership to our congregations through oversight of Redeemer ministries, leaders and members (1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9).
How can I nominate someone?
If you are a church member, please prayerfully consider your fellow members who you might want to nominate as an elder, deacon or deaconess. If you’ve been approached by a member with the suggestion that they nominate YOU to serve in one of these roles, please don’t immediately decline. Take time to prayerfully examine if this is something God is calling you to consider. Please go to the Redeemer website for the description and qualifications of elder, deacon and deaconess.
Members have the privilege and responsibility to nominate other members to these offices. Members may not nominate themselves. You can submit a nomination online, download a nomination form or pick up a form at any service at the information center. Fax completed nomination forms to (646) 572-0020 or mail it to the office at Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Attn: Officer Nomination, 1359 Broadway, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10018
You may also place nomination forms in the offering basket during any of the Sunday worship services in November. The deadline for submitting nominations is November 30th.
