The Board of Directors provides oversight for the church in matters relating to business, finances and policy. In addition, the Senior Pastor reports to the Board of Directors. The Board utilizes the Carver model of policy governance.
- Nomination.The congregation identifies and nominates people who they feel would be good additions to the Board (based on character, giftedness, experience and spiritual maturity). People can nominate others and/or themselves.
- Confirmation.Once nominations are received, the Board and pastoral staff review the nominations and the Board selects one or more candidates to interview. Selected candidates then interview with the Board, after which time they jointly seek the Lord about the decision. The Board then presents approved candidates to the congregation for affirmation.
- Affirmation.Candidates are presented to the congregation for a 2-4 week affirmation process. This allows the church to engage candidates in conversation regarding any concerns they may have (see Matthew 18:15-16) or to disclose if they know anything about the candidates that would disqualify them from serving on the board.
