What is the process for adding Elders?

When evaluating a potential Elder, we look for the "3Ms:"

  • Maturity: General maturity and spiritual maturity.
  • Marriage: The health of the marriage and the maturity of the spouse. If there is not a ministry at home, then there is not a ministry with others.
  • Margin: Enough available time to fulfill the requirements of being an Elder.

Once a potential Elder is identified, the Elder team will walk through an extensive process with them, including the following:

  • Several personal meetings
  • Spending time with their family, community, and business associates
  • A written and oral "exam:" 36 doctrinal and current event questions
  • Group meetings with other core leaders for multiple weeks
  • Pastoral care meetings
  • Staff feedback
  • Church body feedback
Are you considering adding more Elders?
  • We are always looking for men who are qualified to hold the office of Elder. We continue to seek God’s leading as additions to the Elder team are considered.
  • It is critical for Elders to maintain the spirit of unity and the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:3-6). The larger the Elder team grows, the more difficult it is to maintain those relationships.
  • Both the Plano and Fort Worth campuses have Campus Shepherds, who are equipped to disciple and lead others as the pursue full devotion to Christ. We are considering adding Campus Shepherds at the Dallas campus.
