Recommend an Elder or Deacon

Published On November 8, 2022

Submit Recommendations for Elders or Deacons.

Due Sunday, Dec. 11, 2022.

Whom Should I Recommend?


Men and women who demonstrate the spiritual maturity of a life abiding in Jesus, alignment to HP Pres’ vision, and the ability to discern God’s call for our church prayerfully. They are regarded by fellow Christ followers as possessing the essential components of an Elder in character, courage, calling, and competence. Competence is essential in the spiritual gifts of discernment, wisdom, teaching, and leadership. The presence of other gifts, such as administration, encouragement, and mercy, greatly enhance Elder effectiveness. Candidates for Elder must be willing to submit to the principles of governance adopted by the Session. Elder Qualifications.


Men and women who are compassionate, dependable, good communicators, and caring listeners; people who have led others to Jesus by sharing joys and sorrows, and providing encouragement and help; people who are committed to building community in our church and are dedicated to the concept of servant leadership; people who are enthusiastic about the opportunity to interact with our many members—some of whom have acute and critical needs. Deacon Qualifications.
