Selection of elders: Lay elder candidates are interviewed by an elder selection team. Staff elders are selected by the elder selection team. Qualified candidates then meet with the elder board. If after much prayer, all parties are in agreement to continue, the candidates are presented to the congregation for affirmation. New elders serve a minimum of three months and maximum of 12 months in provisional status.
