The Deacon Selection Committee has been very diligent in seeking God’s will and guidance in identifying deacon candidates and properly testing them as required in 1 Timothy 3:8-12. We prayed not only for God’s leadership and for the process to be led by the Spirit, but also for each of our Deacon candidates throughout this process.
The deacon selection process includes nominations solicited from church members followed by an in-depth questionnaire that probes the heart of the nominee in various aspects of faith, evangelism, discipleship, service, and obedience. After committee deliberation, candidates and wives were selected for an interview in front of the selection committee. During this process, we discussed in-depth the expectations of deacon service at Parkway Hills and asked them to share their testimony and how God is leading them and using them to serve Parkway Hills Baptist Church and our community.
Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees has reviewed the list of candidates regarding his or her qualifications to serve as a Trustee. Persons who meet the qualification requirements are duly nominated to be elected as a Trustee through a church vote. Each member is allowed to vote once for each Trustee position being elected. Adam Hines and Kerry Stover have been recommended by the Board of Trustees to serve as Trustees for a second term of three years. This is allowed by the Parkway Hills Bylaws.
