Take heed therefore to yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost has made you overseers (Elders), to feed the church of God, which he has purchased with his own blood. - Act 20:28
Last Sunday, Downriver Christian Community Church was honored and pleased to ordain four men into the position of church Elders. These men and their wives have served the local church faithfully for years with devotion and loyalty, serving to all as examples of commitment to Christ and the advancement his kingdom. These men have displayed the necessary Biblical requirements associated with the position and have now been recognized, appointed, and anointed to help oversee and direct the church affairs.
It is my great pleasure to welcome Bob and Sharon Cassady, John and Nancy Clinton, Ed and Donna Medrano, and Ken and Debbie O'Rourke to their new positions at Downriver Christian Community Church. I eagerly look forward to working with you side by side, establishing and advancing the kingdom of God in our locality. Having watched your lives for many years, it is rewarding to see men and women who have not only talked the talk, but who have also walked the walk. Like the four horsemen of the Apocalypse who were ordained and released to fulfill God's desires on earth, so have you been ordained and released to help fulfill God's desires in the Downriver area. Go forth with new vision and anointing. May God richly bless your lives, work, and ministries in a new and powerful ways!

Since an overseer (Elder) is entrusted with God’s work, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. - Titus 1:7-9
Stay Holy, My Friends!
