Board of Elders

2018 Board Nominations

This fall, we will be electing 1 new person to serve on our board. The board is currently comprised of 5 people. For gender equity, of the 5 on the board at least 2 must be women and 2 must be men (i.e. we'll never exceed a 3-2 ratio in one direction or the other). With Andy Babcock completing his term and stepping down, the remaining board will be 2 women and 2 men. And so, the new board position is open to anyone.

If Ekklesia is your church home, please use the form below to enter the names of up to 2 people you believe to be spiritually mature men and women who care deeply about the life and health of Ekklesia. The people who receive the most nominations (who allow their names to stand) will be added to the ballot along with several individuals already recommended by our current board.

Name #1 (required)
Name #2
Enter your name below (required). In the event someone nominates you, please check whether or not you'd like your name stand for election.

Our elected board of elders meets on a monthly basis to plan and discuss how we can increasingly become a faith community where heaven and earth collide. The board also serve to encourage and care for our pastoral staff.

If you’ve met Colby and Amy and their kids, you already know how awesome they are. Depending on the time of year, they are busy coaching and driving their kids all of over Raleigh for soccer, baseball, basketball and more. They love their kids and they love their church home dearly.
