Today I get to introduce our new elder candidates! Before I get there, I’d love to share a bit about our process of selecting elders and what they do. At Westminster, Elders are men who meet the biblical qualifications as found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. They are responsible for keeping the church on mission, setting vision, and guarding doctrine. Elders serve a three-year term, and approximately 1/3 of our 12 elders (11 lay elders + me) rotate off the team yearly. This year, Bryan Mistele and Steve Sirich are rotating off. Naveen Rajkumar, who has also been serving for the last three years, will extend his term of service for one more year. I am so grateful for each of these men. They have served Jesus and His church with care, conviction, and commitment. 

Each year, the elders prayerfully nominate new candidates to serve as elders. Once we have reached a consensus, we invite those candidates to pray and consider serving. We have invited Kent Weigel and Christian Downs to serve, and they have joyfully accepted this call. If you do not know either of them, their picture and a brief bio are linked here. 

Now it’s time for your part. First, would you join us in prayer for our new elders? Second, we want to hear from you if you believe that there is any reason either Kent or Christian should not serve in this capacity.
