Elder Recommendations

From our Nominating Committee (April 2022),

WPC Elder Class of 2026

The Elder Nominating Committee asks you to prayerfully consider recommending Covenant Partners whom you feel would make good Elders for our church. Elders will:

  • Provide spiritual and strategic leadership
  • Serve on the Session and on an assigned Commission
  • Pray for the church, fellow elders, and Covenant Partners
  • Bathe decisions regarding the church’s mission and ministry in prayer and God’s Word
  • Lead WPC into the fulfillment of God’s direction for WPC as expressed in its Mission Statement, Core Values, DNA Statement, and Strategic Objectives

According to Scripture, elders are to be the spiritual leaders of the church, praying for and with people, preaching and teaching the Word, shepherding the congregation in their walk with Christ, and making decisions important to the wellbeing of the congregation. 

On this recommendation sheet (PDF link), please list the names of Covenant Partners whom you feel would be good Elders as well as the qualities making them good shepherds for our church. Please return to Cathy Hyatt by email or mail to 309 Fernwood Drive, Spartanburg, SC 29307.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration.
