Consistory Nominations

Every year members of RRC have the opportunity to nominate fellow members to the Consistory, our governing body made up of 6 Shepherd Elders, 6 Service Deacons, and the Administrative Board.
 
Elders’ responsibilities include the administration of the sacraments, pastoral care visits, and membership.
 
Deacons’ responsibilities include the collection and counting of offerings, stewardship education, and overseeing the Benevolent Fund.
 
The Administrative Board provides the visionary leadership of the church and oversees the program ministry and budget of the church. They are also responsible for the implementation and evaluation of ministry goals.
 
Each communicant member of Rockford Reformed Church can fill out one nomination form. You can find the form in the back of the sanctuary. Completed forms can be placed in the box at the back of the sanctuary. You can also email your nominations directly to the front office. Be sure to include one name for Administrative Elder, one name for Administrative Deacon, two names for Shepherd Elder, and three names for Service Deacon.
 
A list of those eligible for nomination can be found with the nomination forms in the back of the sanctuary. They have also been emailed. Those currently on consistory are ineligible.
 
Deadline for 2017 nominations is 12 noon on Sunday, September 3.
