WHY YOU ARE WILLING TO SERVE AS AN ELDER?

I love my God and I love this church, so the opportunity to serve in a new and different capacity is both humbling and exciting.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITY OF AN ELDER?

My naïve understanding is that deacons attend to tactical, administrative matters working in conjunction with and under the direction of church leadership and elders who are focused on oversight and spiritual development of the entire congregation.

WHAT AREAS, IF ANY, YOU WOULD LIKE TO PERSONALLY BE INVOLVED IN AS AN ELDER?

I would be happy to get involved in any finance or recordkeeping activities/initiatives as I am unfortunately very comfortable with spreadsheets, and beyond that I would be happy to fill any needs that may arise.
