Elder Nominations for the Class of 2020

Congregational Meeting for Elder Election for the Class of 2020
The Session has called a Congregational Meeting to follow the 11:15 a.m. worship service on Sunday, April 2, for the purpose of electing elders to the Class of 2020. The nominees are:

John Carruth, Michele Foust, Peter Heslin, Trey Huffman, Henry Johnson (youth), Becky Keenum, Chrissy Kennedy, Chari Leitch, Jeff Luce, Jack McCoy, Kenny Miley, Frank Petru, Laura Phelan, Connie Seidel, and Judy Smith.

Also to fill two vacant spots in the Class of 2019: Linda Carlyle and Patty Cloy

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 2020, which includes one (1) youth elder. These 15 will join together with elders in the Class of 2018 and Class of 2019 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 2016 which includes: Heather Bartenfeld, Duane Best, Jim Connah, Richard Daley, Tom Duane, John Godwin, Sara Heslin, Tricia Hovorka, Herman Kistler, Kaye Oliver, Tricia Patterson, Emily Perry, Alex Scudellari, Steve Seibert, and Scott Stewart.

Deadline to submit names was Sunday, February 12, 2017.
If you have any questions, contact Rev. Lyndsay Lee Slocum, 770-649-4519, or Ron Johnson, 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.
