Possible responses for each candidate

  • I know this nominee and am confident that God has prepared him for serving as a shepherd, OR I do not know him but wish to affirm based on him having been nominated by a significant fraction of the congregation and affirmed by the other nominees (YES).

  • I know this nominee but cannot affirm his preparedness to serve as a shepherd at this time (NO).

  • I do not know this nominee well enough to affirm OR have another reason to abstain (ABSTAIN).

Followership commitment

Followership commitment

I am committed to serve in this body and follow the shepherds affirmed by the congregation, even if they were not my personal choice.



  • There should be no campaigning for or against any of our nominees. This should be an honorable and spirit-led process.

  • To honor the one-person, one-vote principle, we are asking everyone to put their name ontheir affirmation ballot.

  • The content of all ballots will be kept confidential and will only be viewed by the committee members.

  • Please continue to pray for this process and encourage our shepherd nominees and their families.
