1. This questionnaire will take some time to complete. Please plan on an hour from start to finish.
2. At one point you will be asked three questions that require longer answers. We recommend that you write these out in a Word document BEFORE hand and "copy and paste" the answer within the text fields of the questionnaire. Websites time out after a certain amount of time and we don't want you to write everything out and then lose your information. The following are the long answer questions you will be asked:
a) your testimony
b) your understanding of the office of Elder
c) information to introduce yourself.
3. If at any point of the questionnaire you need to finish it later, please click "Save and Continue Later" at the bottom of any of the pages. This will send you an email address with a link to continue your answers at a later time.
Acts 20:28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.
3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus...
2 So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. 3 Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them 4 and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.”
28 Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. 29 I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; 30 and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them. 31 Therefore be alert, remembering that for three years I did not cease night or day to admonish every one with tears. 32 And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
