The Elder Advisory Council provides the elders with ready access to a fuller range of congregational perspectives than the current makeup of our elder team provides. The council is comprised of Chapel members that span these attributes of the congregation: gender, age, race/ethnicity, profession, marital status, economic status, and spiritual maturity.
The council’s work includes participation in elder meetings by rotating members, ad-hoc elder committee support, and representation at Quarterly Issues Meetings designed to gather congregational perspectives on issues surfaced by the elder board. The council has a three-year sunset clause pending the elders’ evaluation of its effectiveness and future necessity.
