A RECOMMENDATION FOR WOMEN ON THE ELDER BOARD
Over the past year, our Elder Board has been praying over a very important question: Should Blackhawk Church include women on the Elder Board? If you’ve been around Blackhawk for any amount of time, you know this is not a new question, but one that has been asked frequently over the years. The decision to pursue this bylaw change was not one we considered lightly, but with much prayer.
We hope you take this summer to learn and pray about this issue, which is considered complex by even the most highly trained theological scholars. On October 21, members will vote on this matter at a special Congregational Meeting, and our greatest hope is that no matter the outcome, we continue to love and serve one another in unity. If you have general questions, email email@example.com.
Charles Yu and Chris Dolson held a teaching session where they talked through some of the harder passages and spoke in more detail on why the elders are proposing this change. Audio from that session is available online.
