Today five men were placed before the Redland Hills Church family to assume the role of Elder. We are inviting you, our members, to affirm or express a concern. We have set aside the next two weeks to receive your input. We ask that any concerns you may have about an individual be grounded in the scripture, be given in writing, and include your name. No anonymous submissions will be considered. But we also invite your affirmations. If you have a testimony, a word in prayer, a scripture, or other way to say you believe God is at work in these men, we invite you to share that too. Submissions should be made no later than July 25, 2021.

Elders play a special role in the care of God’s church. Godly leadership is essential to carrying out the ministry and mission of the church. Several passages describe the qualities of an elder.
We are in an exciting season as a church as we mature and appoint our first Elder team. This team will steward the vision of Redland Hills, monitor the church’s doctrine to be in alignment with scripture, perform pastoral care, serve as a prayer covering, mediate conflict, serve as accountability for the Senior Pastor, and serve as the legal trustees of the organization. They must have been an active member of RHC for at least 2 years. Elders will be appointed to 3 year terms, which maybe reaffirmed by the church for a second consecutive term. After the second term there is a one year sabbatical before he is able to be nominated again.
The church membership is being invited to enter into a season of prayer and discernment as we listen to God and ask for his guidance. If the Holy Spirit brings a name (or several) to mind whom you see the qualities mentioned in scripture, you are invited to submit a nominating form
Please place completed forms in a sealed envelope and deliver to the Senior Pastor, the collection boxes in the worship center, or mail to the church. Please submit only one name per form, although you may submit multiple forms.
Forms should be submitted ASAP. Questions may be directed to Pastor Wes.
