Submit names to Nominating Committee for Election of Officers
It is that time of the year when we prepare for the election of NBC officers for the coming year. Officers will be elected at our Annual Business Meeting, which will be held on Sunday, July 21 at 6:00pm.
You have the opportunity to participate in the process by submitting names to the Nominating Committee for their consideration. The Nominating Committee is responsible to present the official ballot to the church. No floor nominations are received at the meeting in which the election will be held. If you would like to submit a name to the Nominating Committee, the deadline for submitting those names is Sunday, June 23. The list of nominees will be posted on Sunday, July 14, as required by our constitution.
The constitution gives the following qualifications for church officers: “All these officers shall be 18 years of age or older. All officers shall be spiritually mature, of unquestioned Christian character, loyal to the Word of God, dedicated and devoted to the Lord Jesus Christ and to the spiritual welfare of this church, and have been saved for one year. All officers shall be a member of this church for a minimum of six months except for Pastors.” (Article V, Section 1, Clauses a and b.) In addition to these qualifications are the specific qualifications for a deacon set forth in I Timothy 3:8-13. As you consider potential men for this office, please review those biblical requirements.
We encourage you to participate in this important process by (1) praying for the Lord’s direction, (2) submitting names for nomination, and (3) being willing to accept a nomination if approached by the Committee.
The following are serving on this year’s Nominating Committee:
Pastor Mark Ashley, Ron Perelka, Ken Vanderground, Herb Van Horn, Jim Pollock.
