Elder Nomination Form
For 25 years, the people of Canyon Ridge have served God and our city in ways that have changed thousands of lives. They have done so with the leadership of volunteers and staff as well as a leadership team known as the Elder Team. Each year, we all pray and consider men from our church that could serve our church on this vital team.
Why this is a big deal…
As churches began in the Bible, teams of wise, seasoned leaders were formed to help guide and direct each church. These teams of “elders” served by leading in ministry, discerning wise next steps, praying with the hurting, helping people through conflict, and ensuring the church was following God whole-heartedly. (Titus 1:5, 1 Peter 5:1-3, Acts 20:28-31, Hebrews 13:17)
The elders of Canyon Ridge do these same things today. We believe this team leadership is Biblical, God-honoring and effective in leading us to be and do all God has in mind for us. By meeting regularly as a team with the Senior Pastor, who is an elder, and fulfilling these roles above, we can have greater confidence that our church is always heading in the right direction.
How you can help?
Consider the men who you know who are wise, Christ-centered, servant-leaders at Canyon Ridge. Take a few minutes to look at 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. Do these verses describe the men you know? If so, please nominate men for consideration by placing their name and contact information on this form. They may be in your small (life) group, or part of a team you're on, or you may volunteer alongside them. Current elders will review all nominations. Interviews and information meetings will be scheduled with qualified nominees.
Finally, please pray that God will lead through this process AND will lead us all into another great 25 years as a church!
Thank you for helping our church!
