Elders

The Board of Elders at Clear Lake Evangelical Free Church is composed of seven members, elected to a three-year term by vote of the congregation. Elder terms are staggered so that one third of the members of the board will be elected at the annual business meeting held early each year. Nominees are expected to meet the biblical requirements set forth in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9.
