Elder Nominations

The deadline for congregational nominations of elders has passed, and the list is in. This month select BCC staff and current elder board members will begin the interviews process with the nominees, culminating in a November-December election by the current board of its three incoming members. (Remember that three of the current elders will be rotating out. Remember that there are three vacancies at this time. Two will serve four years, one will serve three.)

The nominees are:
Mike Dillon
Mark Freeman
Larry Hall
Tony Rich
Devon Weller
Billy Williams
Jared Wilson

And a sterling bunch they are, yours truly humbly excluded of course.

At this point, if you have cause for concern for any of the nominees or know of a legitimate reason for their disqualification, please contact church staff or one of the elders.
Remember to think more along the lines of biblical guidelines or our specific church's guidelines, not necessarily that Devon Weller cut you off in traffic one afternoon. I mean, I think Billy Williams is a certified nutcase, but unfortunately "insanity" is not listed 1 Timothy as a disqualifier for eldership. Oh well. ;-)

The next step of course is Elder Fight Club, where the last three men standing move on to serve.

Peace!

Actually, two slots are open due to a move and one resignation. Only one Elder from the current group (Randy Holland)will rotate off.

Thanks, man. Loved you in "Memphis Belle," by the way.

For me it was " Eight Men Out". I love baseball movies. Actually, there the only movies I collect.
