Leadership of the ICF is in a Council of Elders with the Pastor included in the membership.
The ICF Council is keen to receive nominations for new ICF Elders from the ICF Community. The ICF Council have expressed a desire for people to appreciate two important aspects that they may have experienced as Elders.
Joy - The experience of eldership has been a blessing; seeing God at work, getting to know fellow-elders in new ways, team work in working through the questions about leading the ICF. The work may be challenging but the joy of being involved has been quite significant.
Weakness - Our Elders are all aware of the profound truth in what Paul says in 1 Corinthians 1:26-2:5 and 2 Corinthians 12:9-10. Sometimes when we read of Paul's high standards for eldership we forget he also wrote these words about weakness - and applied them to himself.
Please consider who you think might have a passion for serving the ICF as an Elder; who values the standards Paul lays out and yet is honest about personal weakness. For more information about nominations please contact Pastor Peter.
