At the end of 2022, Steve Roberson will have served a six-year term on the General Council of Elders (GCE) and will rotate off of the Council. According to the Woodland Park Baptist Church constitution, when there is a need for new elders or when one or more elders leaves the GCE, the GCE will ask the congregation to prayerfully suggest the names of men to be considered for service.

A candidate should meet the Scriptural qualifications for elders spelled out in 1 Timothy 3:1–7 and Titus 1:6–9 and should either have been a church member for at least two years or have prior experience serving as an elder in a like-minded church. After a season of consideration, interaction, and prayer, and if the GCE and the candidate(s) mutually determine that the candidate(s) should be considered by the congregation, the GCE shall inform the congregation of such nominations and allow the congregation a period of thirty days to respond in writing to the GCE if there is any biblical basis for any nominee to not be ordained and affirmed as an elder. After thirty days and the resolution of any and all issues, the GCE will ask the congregation to affirm the selection of each nominee to be ordained as an elder (if not previously ordained) and to begin a six-year term of service on the GCE.

If you know of someone who you feel is scripturally qualified and potentially interested in serving as an elder, please prayerfully consider nominating them. The deadline for submissions is Sunday, July 10, 2022.
