Shepherding Elders Ordination

Elder Nominations

The men listed below have completed the examination process as prescribed by Legacy’s Elder Manual. Having found these men in compliance with all Biblical and local qualifications prescribed in scripture and the Elder Manual, Legacy’s current Elders are now unanimously recommending these men be ordained as Shepherding Elders of Legacy Christian Church.

If any member of Legacy Christian Church knows of any reason why any of these men should not be ordained, you are asked to submit that information in writing to the church office by Sunday, June 5, 2022. The submitted information must be signed and be delivered in a sealed envelope addressed to the Chairman of the Elders (Mike Shelton). We believe a local church does not select its leaders, but rather is to recognize men whom the Holy Spirit has called and equipped for leadership ministries. This process of recognizing and affirming whom God is raising up among us is an issue of eternal importance. Please keep all of our Elders and, in particular, these new candidates in your prayers.

What is a Campus Shepherding Elder? 

At each Legacy Campus a team of Shepherding Elder is responsible for the spiritual oversight and shepherding of God’s people on their campus. This includes all matters of pastoral care and church discipline. 

The Campus Pastor will function as a first among equals on this team and will be responsible to lad and equip then for effective service.  

As shepherding is the primary function of elders all Legacy Elders are expected to continue in active service on one of these teams.   

Shepherding elders serve an indefinite term. Every December they will be asked to recommit themselves to service for the coming year. We believe God raises and calls elders into service. Shepherding elders should serve until they no longer feel called to the office or cannot fulfill their responsibilities. 

Shepherding elders who fail to fulfill their assigned responsibilities will be first admonished and possibly removed from eldership by consensus of the other elders.
