Each year we prayerfully consider who should be asked to serve in some of the important roles at Covenant Christian Community Church. The men and women who serve in these roles should be men and women of character, commitment, and competency.

The chief biblical texts that develop the requirements of church leaders are: 1 Timothy 3:1-13, 2 Timothy 2:1-13, Titus 1:5-9, and Acts 6:1-6. Included in these texts we can see the following:

Character. Are they taking on the character of Jesus? Are the potential leaders moving toward greater and greater Christ-likeness? Do they exhibit self-control, hospitality, gentleness (control of anger), a quest for holiness, temperance? Is there evidence of dying to the love of money, to manipulation, to always having it one's own way?

Commitment. Are they committed to Jesus? Are they committed to his church as a kingdom people (not primarily as an institution)? Are they committed to the Covenant Church family in such a way that they would be a good fit to lead like Jesus among us?

Competency. Do they possess the natural and spiritual gifts to serve in a capable way that reflects Jesus? Are they able to think clearly, communicate with grace, and serve with love? Do they have the strength to make decisions, to stand by them when necessary even when criticized, and to change their mind when they should?

Please see the roles needed below and let us know who, from our Covenant Family, you would nominate to serve us in these ways. You may nominate as many people as you like for each position. The nomination team will prayerfully consider each nominee and ask those who they feel would be the best fit.
