What are the major roles of an elder at Bethany?

Elders perform a directional role in that they prayerfully work with the Senior Pastor to discern God’s will for Bethany Church.

Elders perform a pastoral role by praying for our church, administering the Lord’s Supper, and overseeing the membership process.

Elders perform financial oversight of Bethany Church to ensure that its human resources and other assets are faithfully used.

Elders practice personal ministry by actively supporting and participating in ministry areas of interest.

What are the primary roles of a Nominating Committee Member at Bethany?

Nominating Committee Members identify, interview andrecommend potential elder candidates and at large members of the Nominating Committee.

Please note that we regard 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:1-9 as a guide to the moral character required of an elder.
