Welcome to this ministry! We are so glad that you have listened to the voice of God calling you into this ordered ministry as a Ruling Elder or Deacon. It is a magnificent calling, and we are all pleased to join you in this ministry. Seven weeks of Officer Training plus an Officer Retreat are before us as we come together to prepare you for these roles.
We will meet on Sunday mornings Sunday, September 24 -November 5, 2017. It’s critically important that you participate in the Officer Training Sessions on Sundays and the Officer Retreat November 10 and 11 at Maumee Bay, Ohio. Each week covers an important topic and also provides time for you to get to know one another. We will use a number of units from Theoacademy, http://www.theocademy.com/lessons-for-ruling-elders-and-deacons.
