WEFC Shepherds Installation

HERE ARE A FEW THINGS we have learned through this sermon series:

  • Jesus is our “template” for spiritual leadership: he knows the sheep, loves the sheep, leads the sheep and equips the sheep
  • Church leaders are to keep a close watch on their testimony and the Word of God.
  • Spiritual shepherds are accountable to God for how they care for God’s people.
  • Elders are to be an example to the church, give oversight to the church, guard the truth and equip the people for ministry.
  • Elders care for the spiritual needs of the church and deacons care for the physical needs of the church.

In light of what we have discovered through this series, this coming Sunday (6/3), we will be installing our Executive Board who will be our servant-leaders for the coming year. Even though we envision making changes to our structure, the current board is taking steps to live out the ideals of what it means to be shepherds here at WEFC.

On Sunday they will be humbly making promise to the congregation to faithfully carry out their responsibilities. At the same time, we will be asking the congregation to pray for them and encourage them as they seek to lead our congregation.

Peter captures the nature of our relationship together in 1 Peter 5:5, “Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for God opposes the proud and gives grace to the humble.”

The names of our leaders for 2018-2019 are:

Pastors: Scott Solberg, Mike Conserva and Ryan Warner

Deacons: Ned Cornwall, Skip Hardy, Brian Hucks, Steve Keller, Daryl Ostergren, Steve Peery, John Rascius and Dale Reese

Members-at-Large: Gerry Gingras (Trustees), Dave Gough (Missions) Don Jensen and Jack Jensen

We are grateful for their leadership and service and we look forward to what God has in store for us in the coming year.
