Elder Evaluation and Discipline Policy

XPastor tries to help churches by providing some of the essentials for running a church—items like job descriptions, employment applications, review forms and policies. Below is the Elder Evaluation and Discipline Policy of Bible Fellowship Church from 2001.

Individual Elders will be evaluated and disciplined by the Board on the basis of verifiable information which raises issues or questions of conduct, doctrinal position, or qualifications. The basis of consideration and discipline is Matthew 18:15-17 and 1 Timothy 5:19, 20. In the event it becomes necessary to evaluate an Elder, the Chairman of the Board shall appoint three Elders to investigate the matter and bring a recommendation to the Board. The committee shall consider testimony, including that of the Elder being evaluated. When the committee’s recommendation is brought to the Board, the Elder being evaluated may, at his choice, represent himself to the Board. Board action shall be taken only on the basis of two thirds agreement of the Board, but shall exclude the Elder being evaluated from participating in the vote. The Board may request an Elder to resign or may remove him from the office of Elder.
