LT & Nominating Team Selection Process

Click here to go directly to Nominations Form.

The process of nominating people to serve on both the Leadership Team and the Nominating Committee for new terms begins in September each year and are presented for approval at a brief Congregational Meeting typically held the first Sunday of December.

What are the terms of these positions?
Nominating Committee members serve for a term of two (2) years.
Leadership Team members serve for a term of three (3) years.

What is required of a Nominating Team member in general?
Must be an active member of Redeemer. The Nominating Committee does not meet on a regular basis but as needed - most usually during the months of September through November to discuss, review and decide upon members to be presented to the congregation for acceptance as members of the appropriate team.  A Nominating Committee member should be spiritually mature and willing to spend time praying and seeking God’s leading in the selection of candidates.

What is required of a member of the Leadership Team in general?
Must be an active member of Redeemer who is willing and able to participate in monthly meetings of the Leadership Team as well as other specially called meetings of the LT or the congregation. The Leadership Team is responsible along with the pastoral staff for spiritual oversight of the congregation, and also works with the staff to manage the church’s assets and to ensure our direction remains consistent with our vision.

What does Scripture have to say about the role of church leaders?
If you want to read scripture that further discusses the role of church leaders, you should turn to Acts 20:17-31 and 1 Peter 5:1-3.  In addition, Paul lists some of the qualifications for church leadership in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9.

How can I get more detailed information about either or both of these volunteer positions?
You may click here to email your request to the current Leadership Team.

HOW CAN I SUBMIT A NAME FOR CONSIDERATION?
We encourage you to be praying about this process that God would clearly show our congregation those He is calling to lead us at this time.  As you pray, if you feel led to volunteer or someone comes to mind that you believe is uniquely qualified to serve on one of these teams, please use the form below to submit a Member or Members to be considered by the Nominating Team. Or, you may personally give any names directly to one of the current members of the Nominating Team (MaryBeth Ogle, April Thomas, Doug Hughes, Nancy Jay, Gary McKinney along with Pastor Bill Clark and LT Representative Sharon Pyle).
