Should ministers (who are essentially "paid employees" of the church) chair council meetings or be members of the council?
Does rebaptism automatically disqualify that person from holding office in the Christian Reformed Church?
We have an elder in our church who has stated that he "represents" a certain number of people that he feels are neglected, although they are long time members, some with a lot of influence. I thought that our form of church government was not to be representative. Any thoughts?
Why not allow any individual who has been ordained as an Elder but is not serving a current term of office to represent the Classis at Synod?
