FBC members are requested to submit nominations for the 2017 Deacon Nominating Committee:
Ed Good will serve as the 2017 Deacon Nominating Committee chair.
Nominees for the additional eight Deacon Nominating Committee members are requested early in the year so the committee can be formed and begin their work during the summer months.
In the fall, Deacon Nominating Committee members will contact Deacon nominees equal to the number of vacancies on the Diaconate as to their willingness to serve.
Once the slate of new deacons is complete, it is submitted to the church for a vote.
Installation, ordination and service of new deacons are in early January.
Below is a ballot that will be used in submitting recommendations for the eight positions on the Deacon Nominating Committee. Ballots will also be available on Sunday morning, March 12. Ballots must be signed by members. They may be placed in the offering plate or returned to the church office by Monday, March 20.
Because the persons on the committee are ineligible to serve again for two years, do not nominate any of the following: Pat Booker-Christy, Jeanette Cothran, Greg Crowe, Susan Dodson, Ed Good, John Jones, Pam Jones, Mike Kellett, Freda Lark, Charles McDonald, Jennifer Murphy, Neil Rabon, Marie Richards, Cherron Saad, Louise Stanford, Henry Watkins, and Jamie Womack.
