As there were in Old Testament times elders for the government of the people, so the New Testament church provided persons with particular gifts to share in discernment of God’s Spirit and governance of God’s people.

Recommendations for Nominations

Calling Elders, Deacons, and Trustees

Just as Jesus called the Disciples, He is also calling you. Is anything more important than His call in your life? How are you responding to Christ’s call? How can you experience the joy and privilege of serving Him today?

Jesus went up on the mountainside and called to Him those He wanted, and they came to Him. – Mark 3:13 NIV

We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. – Romans 12:6a NIV

It’s a Great Time to Serve!

These are exciting times in the life of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. We are committed to looking upward, growing inward, and reaching outward so that we may know God and make God known through lives transformed by Christ.

The Congregation’s Nominating Committee invites you to participate in the work of the church by suggesting nominations for Elders, Deacons, and Trustees. The importance of these positions to the life of our church cannot be overemphasized. Prayerfully nominate those members whom you feel would best serve St. Andrew’s in leadership positions. The term of service for these positions is three years and commences in January.

All of God’s people have unique spiritual gifts to serve the Kingdom of God. Some of the gifts often found in Elders, Deacons, and Trustees are described below. You will want to consider the spiritual gifts and the spiritual maturity of the person you wish to nominate.


Serve on the Session and exercise leadership, planning, governance, and discipline for the life of the church. Jointly and individually Elders have the duty to strengthen and nurture the faith and life of the congregation. Elders are elected by the congregation for a three-year Session term providing church-wide ministry leadership.

The spiritual gifts and qualities needed by Elders are first and foremost a deep abiding faith in Jesus Christ; dedication and commitment to the duties of being an Elder and to the church’s mission and government; willingness to lead a ministry; collaborative leadership skills; sound judgment and love for one another and the body of Christ.


Provide sympathy, witness, and service for the caring ministries of the church. Communion preparation, some church-wide events, blood drives, prayer, and pastoral care ministries are examples of what Deacons commit to in our congregation. Creating a loving environment for congregational care is one of their primary goals.

The spiritual gifts and qualities needed by Deacons are a servant’s heart after the example of Jesus; warmth and compassion; commitment to the calling; love for one another and the body of Christ.


Develop and execute the long-range plans for the congregation. They communicate to the congregation the planned giving alternatives and support the operating and capital programs. Trustees exercise sound fiduciary responsibility for the management and growth of the church’s assets.

The spiritual gifts and qualities needed for Trustees commitment to supporting the strategic and annual plans; knowledge and understanding of managing financial assets, planned giving alternatives, and sound financial investment strategies.
