Meeting - 6:30pm
The Elders' Board of Deer Park Alliance Church is pleased to announce that the Annual General Meeting for the Church will be held on 15 October 2017, at 6:00 pm, in the gymnasium. Light refreshments will be served at 6:00 and the meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30. The meeting is open to all members and adherents of Deer Park Alliance Church, but only members are able to vote. Our business will be the presentation of the annual report, the 2016-17 financial presentation, approval of the 2017-18 budget, and election of elders and nominating committee members for the coming year.
As a part of our AGM on the 15th of October, we will be electing elders for our church congregation. All elders at DPC have been members of the church for at least a year and are nominated for three year terms. This year, the nominating committee unanimously brings forward Barry Archer as a candidate for eldership.
Barry has faithfully served the past three years on the board, is active and committed in personal spiritual growth and service to the church, and is eligible for one additional three year term. Barry has been a very valuable part of our elder team over the past years, and we are so pleased that he has been willing to allow his name to stand.
Our continuing elders are Ben Elliott, Steve Friesen, Dave Misener, and Jeff Leedholm. Our DPC bylaws permit a board of four to seven members; subject to the congregational approval of Barry Archer, we would be anticipating a board of five members this year.
