Please pray for these nominees as they go through training in theology and ministry skills and prepare for their interviews. They will be evaluated on their character, Christian life and experience, theological understanding, and giftedness and readiness to serve the church as an elder or deacon/ess. Our current elders will then determine which individuals will be presented for election at the May congregational meeting. If you have questions about the nomination, evaluation and training process, please contact Jenny Chang at (917) 206-1407 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
