Leadership Selection Process

Every three years, Greenville Oaks goes through a Leadership Selection Process to select Elders. The men who are currently serving as our Elders are a rich blessing to us. They show their love for God and for this family through faithful service. We are so thankful for them!

Greenville Oaks members can indicate their level of confidence in the ability of each Candidate to serve as an Elder.
