A Call From Your Nominating Committee
Do you wonder if God might be calling you to serve your church in a leadership role? Do you know members of our congregation who you believe have the gifts to serve?
- Elders (the Session) provide spiritual leadership for the church and work with pastors, staff, councils, and members to shape and lead our church’s ministry.
- Deacons serve as the hands and feet of our church’s ministry of compassion, hospitality, and presence by visiting or calling members, delivering meals and flowers, and organizing church fellowship activities.
- Endowment trustees are the stewards of our church’s endowment–ensuring that the generous gifts of our congregation are invested wisely and used faithfully.
- The members of the Nominating Committee discern ministry gifts within our congregation and work together to nominate the next class of leaders for our church.
In the Presbyterian Church, we say that we’re a “priesthood of all believers.” In essence, that means that we share leadership and we do our ministry as one body with many parts. The Nominating Committee is beginning to discern candidates for our church’s leadership teams next year, and we ask you to prayerfully consider whether you or someone you know might be called to serve in one of these roles. See the full descriptions of responsibilities for each role below, and contact Peg Zitzner, Chair of the Nominating Committee, ([email protected]) with any questions or suggestions for nominations.
Below are the full descriptions of Fairmount’s Elders and Fairmount’s Deacons:
