Thank you for your help!
The Nominating Committee’s responsibility is to listen to God and discern qualified and gifted church members to serve in the elected positions of leadership. New leaders are elected each year at Wellspring’s Annual Meeting to fill vacancies. We have spent many hours in conversation and prayer with each other and with potential nominees, including hearing from those currently serving. We listened to current board members, happy to hear their sense of hope and energy, having spent time developing trust and bonding together over the last year. Thanks to everyone who gave us suggestions and advice, and answered our phone calls and emails!
Our goal is to present nominees whose spiritual maturity, spiritual gifts, faithfulness, availability, and teachability qualify them to serve. We are talking with potential nominees who are current Wellspring members, diverse in race, ethnicity, gender, age, spiritual gifts, marital status, leadership experience, years at Wellspring, life experience, and career path. We are striving to select nominees whose skills and gifts will enhance and complement current leaders. Details about final nominees will be made available before the Annual Meeting on June 11, where church members will vote in new leaders.
The Nominating Committee does its work under the umbrella of Wellspring’s bylaws and according to Wellspring’s core values, statement of faith & our denomination, the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA).
