Elder Nominations
Huntersville Presbyterian Church

Qualifications to look for in an elder: a spotless reputation, the spouse of one spouse, sober-minded, sensible, respectable, welcoming to strangers, and gifted to teach. Disqualify any drunk or violent person. Look for a gentle person; no belligerent person can follow this calling. And elder should be free from money lust. Elders should exert good control over their own households, and their children should obey and honor them. (If someone can’t manage their own household, then how can they take care of God’s family?) Elders mustn’t be someone recently converted; otherwise, they may become arrogant and fall into the devil’s condemnation. 1 Timothy 3: 2 – 6
