Session and Diaconate Nomination Time

It’s Session (Elder) and Diaconate nomination time! Job descriptions of both positions are available on the Volunteer Desk. In addition to the job descriptions as given in Scripture and in the EPC Book of Government, Brainerd Presbyterian also has the following requirements for Deacons:

  • A Deacon must first have been a member of Brainerd Presbyterian for at least two years.
  • A Deacon may be either a man or a woman. (The current Session supports the ordination of women to the office of Deacon.)
  • Additional BPC requirements for Elder:

  • A Ruling Elder must first have been a member of Brainerd Presbyterian for at least two years.
  • A Ruling Elder is a man. (The current Session affirms only the ordination of men to the office of Ruling Elder.) The offices of Ruling Elder and Deacon are separate and distinct callings. Therefore, it is not mandatory for a Ruling Elder to have served first as a Deacon. However, BPC has often found it advisable to give strong consideration to those Ruling Elder nominees who have at some point served on the Diaconate.
  • If you know of someone who meets these qualifications, please speak with one of your Elders about your nominee suggestion. Nominations will be accepted now through the end of August.

    Please continue to pray for our church ministries! Help us in Building Community ... Building Kingdom!

    Please call the Church Office for any hospitalizations / notifications.
