BLVD Leadership 2023

A year ago we reached a milestone in our church’s history by creating our leadership team of Deacons, Elders, and Board of directors. Now it is time for us to open up another round of nominations for all of these boards. 

The nomination process will last for two weeks. Information about the process, terms of service, qualifications of the nominees and the descriptions of the Board of Directors, Pastoral Care Elders and Deacons can be found on the menu above

For the next two weeks, we ask that you pray and ask for discernment for names of those who you would like to nominate for these three boards.

Nominations can be submitted online here. You will also find paper forms at the information table in the sanctuary. 

If you have any questions, please send them to info@blvdholland.com. Please submit your nominations by January 31, 2023.
