These photos are an example of "Chairmen of the Board" since women were not permitted to serve as Officers of the Church. It wasn't until 1971, women were nominated for positions on the Consistory. Although they were not elected, this marked a significant step in the history of our Church. Eventually by the early-1980's, women were elected to serve as Deacons and Trustees. Over the past few decades, a multitude of ladies have dutifully fulfilled these offices.
The most reverent office of Elder remains reserved for men.
To serve on the Consistory is regarded as a great honor and privilege. We respect all these leaders following in the footsteps of our founders.
