ELDER NOMINATION | AUGUST 29 – SEPTEMBER 26
The leadership of Homeport is presenting JR Young to the congregation for consideration to become an Elder. JR & Maureen Young have been a part of Homeport since 2017. JR entered our Elder Apprenticeship program in the Fall of 2019 but with Covid, it slowed the process down. The congregation of Homeport has 30 days to come to either Jim Leewe or Ben Boles with a scriptural reason why JR should not be an Elder. All objections will be handled anonymously with JR. If no scriptural reason can be found, JR will be ordained as an Elder at Homeport in October.
