Nominations are happening now


The Alive Board of Directors (BOD) is made up of twelve members which includes the President, VP, Clerk, and Finance Team Leaders. At the end of this particular year, one member of the BOD will be retiring, and we will looking to add up to four additional members to help with the workload. The Council is comprised of eight elders and six deacons, of which two elders and two deacons are completing their terms at year end. We are so grateful for the service these leaders have given in directing community in the LIFE-giving journey here at Alive Ministries.   


In order to discern those who will fill those leadership spots, we would appreciate your help in replacing these Board and Council members by receiving nominations from you. Here are a few questions you may have as you prayerfully consider this:

             

"WHOM SHOULD I NOMINATE?"  


For the Board, think about individuals who have been on the journey with Alive long enough to know what we are about and are sold out to the mission and vision of Alive. These persons would be on mission themselves, reaching into our community to build relationships that bring LIFE. People to nominate would possess an evangelical faith, be strategic thinkers, and be communicators with vision. Please see the Board nominations brochure for descriptions of the functions and responsibilities of our Board members. 

 

For the Council, there are different requirements, including membership at Alive, biblical qualifications, and particular functions different from the board. Click here to view a list of members eligible for council nomination. Please see the Council nominations brochure for descriptions of roles and qualifications.
