The members of Exodus Belmont have approved Adam Lee as an Elder of Exodus Church.
We want to share a little of what it mean to be an elder and a little about Adam.
The qualifications of an elder are in 1 Timothy 3, 2 Timothy 2, Titus 1, and 1 Peter 5.
Here is what 1 Timothy 3 says…
The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil. (ESV)
At Exodus, we have a fairly lengthy vetting process to be an elder that Adam has completed. This is not to suggest that Adam is a perfect man, but we do see, by God’s grace, evidence of maturity in Adam’s life.
Adam and Kristi started attending Exodus Church seven years ago. Adam currently serves as Deacon leading the Greeter Teams, and Kristi plays keys with one of the church bands while also leading the South Point community group. Adam owns a State Farm insurance agency in Mount Holly, and Kristi operates a piano studio from their home. They have three girls, Aubrey (11), Makenna (9) and Brooke (6). Adam loves to run and enjoys the outdoors and hiking with his family.
Our members have voted to affirm Adam and we will soon commission him as an elder.
In the meantime, Please pray for our church and for Adam and his family as he assumes the new role of elder.
