Leadership nominations are open from October 1-November 19 for both our pastor/elder team and our deacon team. You can learn more about both teams and make your nomination at https://www.loveshelbyville.com/leaders. Curious who are current leaders are? Head to https://www.loveshelbyville.com/about.
Who should I nominate?
We always remind our church family that we want to nominate leaders who are already embodying the characteristics of a church leader (See 1 Timothy 3, Titus 1, 1 Peter 5). Look around you. See those servant leaders who are oozing Jesus? Nominate them!
What happens after I nominate someone?
We contact that leader and ask them to pray about accepting that nomination. If they do, we begin a season of vetting that includes prayer, questionnaires, personal interactions, and background checks. At the end of that, our pastor/elder team recommends new leaders to the covenant members for a vote of affirmation.
Still have questions?
Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or another one of our pastor/elders with questions.
