Elder Nominations for the Class of 2021
At this time each year, members of Roswell Presbyterian Church have the unique opportunity, as well as the responsibility, to be a part of the process of choosing new elders. Elders are the lay leaders of the congregation who govern and guide the spiritual life and mission of this church. You are urged to become an active part of this process by submitting the names of members who you believe would well serve this congregation as elders on its Session.
The Nominating Committee requests that you give prayerful consideration to the incoming 15-member elder Class of 2021, which includes one (1) youth elder. These 15 will join together with elders in the Class of 2019 and Class of 2020 to make-up our Session. The Youth Elder should be in their junior or senior year of high school.
The names of the Current Session are listed below. These individuals are not eligible for nomination for election this year as well as the Class of 2017 which includes: Dottie Akin, Kathy Alley, Mike Bangs, Ashley Boyle, Lynn Durham, Carol Fowler, Debbie Haughton, Nancy Hyatt, Ron Knight, Sarah Langville, David Rhodes, Peter Scott, Brandon Smith, Rick Stewart, and Mike Strickland. In addition, Paula Hedges Crawford and Mary Lynn Thach, who were members of the Class of 2019, are not eligible for nomination.
Deadline to submit names is Sunday, February 18, 2018.
If you have any questions, contact Rev. Lyndsay Lee Slocum, 770-649-4519, or Nancy Hyatt, Nominating Committee Chair.
What is an elder?
An elder is a member of this church who is tasked with strengthening and nurturing the faith and life of the people of this congregation.
What are the qualifications of an elder?
We believe that the only thing that qualifies anyone is the grace of Jesus Christ. However, we also believe that elders are leaders of the church and therefore are held to a higher standard. Our hope is that these men and women would most importantly live as disciples of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, both in word and works.
