This Nomination Ballot is one of the first of many steps in the selection of Elders and Deacons to serve Missio Dei Church. We ask that you, after praying, reflecting thoughtfully, meditating over Scripture, and observing the behavior of the potential people, nominate up to four biblically qualified men for elder and four biblically qualified men for deacon, as well as suggestions (godly men and women) for assistants to the deacons.

The Office of Elder (Servant Leaders) is one of spiritual leadership. So, “He that fills this office should possess a competency of human learning and be blameless in life, sound in the faith and apt to teach. He should exhibit a sobriety and holiness of life becoming the Gospel. He should rule his own house well and should have a good report of them that are outside the Church.” (BCO 8-2)

The Office of Deacon (Leading Servants) is one of servanthood and service after the example of Christ. So, “To the office of deacon, which is spiritual in nature, shall be chosen men of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly spirit, warm sympathies, and sound judgment.” (BCO 9-3)

We ask that you, after praying, reflecting thoughtfully, meditating over Scripture, and observing the behavior of the potential people, nominate up to four biblically qualified male individuals for elder and four biblically qualified men for deacon, as well as suggestions for assistants to the deacons (godly men and women).
