Officer Training

Posted by on Sep 16, 2015 in Events

Marcus-J.-Serven-252x183Over the course of the past few months, I have had the privilege of working with five men from our congregation who have been nominated for church office. These five men–Marc Houghton, Joe Saffa, Tim Heger, Peter Bringe, and Cody Winton–have been busily studying the Westminster Confession of Faith and the OPC’s Book of Church Order. Once we are done with our training classes, our borrowed elder, Mr. Bruce Stahl, and myself will closely examine them and certify their eligibility as candidates for office. Then we’ll hold an election and proceed to ordain and install those men who received sufficient votes from the congregation. What an exciting time this is! We have desired to have local church government for many years, and now we are on the threshold of seeing it actually happen! I’ll give an update on the blog, from time to time, as we proceed. Your prayers for us, are certainly welcome!
