About the Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee is a committee of seven or eight members of the congregation and is elected by the congregation annually. The primary responsibility of the committee is to select Elder and Deacon nominees; as well as to select nominees for this Nominating Committee. When needed, the Nominating Committee also selects candidates for Associate Pastor Nominating Committees, Pastor Nominating Committees, and Presbytery Commissioners (First Pres' representatives to the San Francisco Presbytery).

Nominating Committee members, Deacons and Elder candidates should:

Be able to affirm trust in Jesus Christ, believe in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; accept the Scriptures to be the unique and authoritative witness to Jesus Christ in the Church universal; and adopt Essential Tenets of the Reformed Faith.

Be above reproach and meet Scriptural standards (e.g. 1Timothy 3:1-10, Titus 1:6-9).

Be a member of First Pres, involved in the life of the church and support First Pres financially.
