The pastors of CCC are currently evaluating and equipping two men within our church to potentially become elders in our congregation: Josh Topel and Jake Osborn.
The office of the elder (which we understand to be synonymous with “pastor”) is one of great weight and significance in the life of a church. Within Scripture, there are high standards and requirements for any man who would hold this office (see Titus 1 and 1 Timothy 3)–particularly in the areas of conviction, character, and competency. The congregation plays an important role in helping to evaluate and potentially affirm men who aspire to become elders. So, our current pastors would greatly appreciate your honest feedback about Jake Osborn and/or Josh Topel, as they continue to evaluate and help them prepare for potential pastoral roles in the life of the church.
