Are new elders, deacons and deaconesses needed?
Yes! Our church is at a critical juncture in light of our plan to establish three generative congregations to move out into the city and serve. The needs in our congregation are numerous and have been increasing. As our church continues to grow, we need your help to identify new servant-leaders.
As Redeemer’s mercy ministry, the deacons and deaconesses serve on the Diaconate and provide practical assistance to those in our congregation who are facing challenging situations (Acts 6:1-4 & 1 Timothy 3:8-13). The elders serve on the Session and provide spiritual leadership to our congregation through oversight of Redeemer ministries, leaders and members (1Timothy 3:1-7 & Titus 1:6-9).
How can I nominate someone?
