About the Role of Elder at Lake Forest Church

At Lake Forest, it is the responsibility of the Ruling Elders to govern the church and oversee the spiritual welfare of the congregation, including vision-casting and planning, stewardship of pastors and staff, shepherding and praying for members of the body and participation in special duties and weekly meetings.

All Ruling Elders are nominated and confirmed by Ministry Partners after examination by the Elder Nominating Committee (ENC). Elders can be male or female and must be an active Lake Forest Church Ministry Partner who demonstrates admirable leadership and character qualifications. Lake Forest Elders must also agree with all components of EPC “Essentials” and general assent with the Westminster Confession.
