Opportunities for Service:

They supervise in matters of church discipline and spiritual care giving. The Board of Elders receive direction from, but also assist the called staff. Elders report to the Executive Council and Voters' Assembly. They should possess good communication skills of listening and sharing concerns. In addition, they support the activities of the sanctioned societies and organizations active in this congregation. The term of service is 3 years.
