The Position of Elder

The Elders are elected for three year terms by the congregation.  Elders are charged with promoting the growth and welfare of the church by giving spiritual direction to our church policy, presiding at the communion table, and encouraging the mission, education, and stewardship responsibilities of the congregation. Visitation and serving communion upon request to church family who are unable to attend worship are part of the shepherding duties of our Elders.  In addition, it is the responsibility of the Elders to review and make recommendations to the church board in regard to the minister's salary.

The history of Mantua Center Christian Church is steeped in a tradition of great leaders who, through their participation as Elders of the Church, helped shape and mold the culture of deep respect and reverence for future Elders to come. The folks you see below exemplify that culture and are held in the highest esteem within the church. They are almost afforded as much respect as the Pastor!

Back Home

Obviously, we have a culture that ensures we will never take ourselves too seriously. For it is with humor and humility in oneself that we learn to be tolerant and loving to all of God’s children. We maintain reverence for God and seriously believe that humor and fellowship are a fundamental aspect of what makes us effective in doing God's work.
