At Lazy Mountain Bible Church we believe that God has ordained ELDERS to lead the church in fulfilling its mission to make disciples (1 Timothy 5:17 & 1 Peter 5:1-2). The board of elders must consist of a minimum of 5 men, including the senior pastor. Each elder serves a 3-year term and is elected by a 75% vote of the church membership at the annual church business meeting held in January.
