Elders are nominated by the congregation and undergo a robust screening and interview process. Accepting the volunteer role of elder is not something to be taken lightly. Elders make extensive time commitments and take on deep spiritual responsibility in leading Friends Church, and we are grateful for their selfless service on our behalf.
At Friends Church, our elders carry the ultimate responsibility and authority to see that the church remains on a true biblical course; that its members are being appropriately shepherded, that the body is being fed through insightful and accurate biblical teaching, and that the life of the church is being well managed with the assistance of competent and godly leaders.
