The Elder Meeting for September 2017, began with a time of prayer for the body of Apex. After, the following was covered:
- Elders are spending a sizable amount of time working on developing the 2018 budget. Due to a decrease in attendance and giving, the Elders are prayerfully considering how they can tighten up the budget.
- The Elders decided to start the process to hire a Preaching Team Lead for Kettering and a Preaching Team Lead for Xenia. The two search committees—one for Kettering and one for Xenia—are being created and will be finalized in the coming weeks. The goal is to begin vetting the candidates in early October.
