The Pastor

Section 1. Qualifications of Pastor

 

The Pastor shall be a man who possesses the gifts and experience sufficient to enable him to teach and preach the Word of God, to lead the congregation in it's search for God's will, and to perform the necessary administrative functions incumbent upon this position.  His daily life shall be consistent with the Christian life as set forth in Scripture. He shall be a testimony to the love and grace or God and be an example of spiritual leadership in his home (1 Timothy 3:1-7 ; 1 Peter 5:1-4 ; Hebrews 13:17 ; Titus 1:5-9 ).

 

Section 2. Selection of Pastor

 

When a vacancy in the office of Pastor has been announced, a nominating committee shall be constituted of two Elders, chosen by the board of Elders, and three members selected by the membership of the church. The committee shall contact and interview prospective candidates for the position. Upon the approval by the committee of a prospective candidate, he shall be recommended to the Board of Elders at which time a report of the extent of the committees research and the reasons for their selection shall be presented.  Any dissenting opinion should be explained in full to the Board.

 

The Board of Elders shall interview the candidate and upon seventy-five percent (75%) Favorable vote, the candidate shall be asked to preach before the congregation at a regular Sunday morning worship service (plus any other services for which he may schedule). If the candidate accepts this invitation, the congregation shall be notified of the scheduled date of his appearance in candidacy and a special business meeting shall be called in accordance with Article IV for the purpose of voting on the pastoral candidate. Ample opportunity for the congregation to meet and interview the candidate shall be scheduled.

 

A period of at least one week must elapse between the appearance of the candidate and the taking of a vote. Committee files on the candidate under consideration will be open to any member of the congregation interested in seeing them. A quorum must be present at the time of voting and a ninety percent (9O%) plurality is required for approval of the candidate. Opportunity shall be given at this meeting for members to speak in favor or in opposition to the candidacy of the man under Consideration.

 

The vote for the approval of a candidate for Pastor shall be by secret ballot. The ballots shall be counted at the time of the meeting and the results announced at that time.

 

Section 3. Termination of Pastor

 

Notice of resignation shall be delivered in writing to the Board of Elders at least one month in advance of the effective termination date of the Pastor.

 

In the event that the relationship between the Pastor and the congregation deteriorates to the point of being detrimental to the welfare of the church, the relationship of the Pastor to the church shall be terminated. Recommendation of such termination can be activated by a seventy-five percent (75%) vote of the Board of Elders, excluding the Pastor, or by written petition signed by fifteen percent (15%) of the church membership. When such termination is recommended to the membership, a secret ballot shall be taken at a duly called business meeting (Article IV). A majority of votes cast shall be necessary for dismissal. The effective termination date shall be at the discretion of the Board of Elders, but must be within two months after the vote for termination.

 

The Pastor shall cease to be a voting member of the Board of Elders effective immediately upon a vote for termination by the membership of the church.

 

Welcome to the new website!

We want to welcome you to the newly redesigned website for Faith Evangelical Bible Church! This redesign process has taken a very long time, but now that it is finished, we are thrilled about the changes.

 

The one thing that has changed the most, as you can tell, is the design. Much of the menu systems and functionality have remained the same, though the menu system has also been revamped to help get you where you want to go even faster, with fewer clicks.

 

Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the new layout. We think you will like the fact that you can get just about anywhere with just a few clicks. We are also available to help answer any questions about the new site and help your find your way around.

 

As always, we hope you enjoy your stay!

~in Christ
