Kairos Outside - Houston TX
 Community Page

It's that time of year to nominate folks from our KOH Community to serve on the Advisory Council!!
Please take time to read the following information and nomination process.

The Advisory Council is a body of Christian volunteers in the KOH community, who serve in leadership roles for the benefit of the health and direction of the ministry. As a member of the KOH community, you not only participate in the hands-on ministry, but you also participate in the election of persons who serve as members of the Advisory Council, and you are called to also offer yourself in sacrificial service as a member of the Advisory Council.

It is the Advisory Council that oversees the local community, in our case Kairos Outside Houston (“KOH”). The election for the KOH Advisory Council will be conducted during the September/October 2020 time frame.

Each person on the Advisory Council can serve a three-year term of service and if it is the expressed desire of the KOH community, may be re-elected to a 2nd three year term of service. This applies to all except the Chairperson.

Active KOH community members are eligible to elect the Advisory Council as well as serve, if elected, on the Advisory Council.

VERY IMPORTANT: KOH community members are considered ‘active’ if they: 

are active in their church community

have served on a Kairos team within the past 2 year(s) and/or have been active in the continuing ministry during the past 2 years

Kairos encourages members to be active in a Christian accountability group.

There are open positions for the upcoming election.  Please note that this initial process is to seek people who would like to serve.  Once final decisions have been made, the newly elected Advisory Council will then vote people into positions.

Those currently on the Advisory Council are:

Dana Parcel, Paula Aitkens, Christy Dobbs-Perez, Natalie Porteous, Libby Allen, Dawn Doughten, Jamie Torres, Don Allen, Nita Smith, Robin Bruso,              Vickie Williams, Michelle Hicks, Martha Valdez, Will Starkweather, Maria Garcia, Michelle Harris

If you would like to nominate someone, including yourself, for service on the Advisory Council, please ask about the person’s willingness to serve and then submit the nomination no later than Thursday, October 8, 2020, in one of the following ways:

Send an email with the nomination(s) to kairosoutsidehouston@gmail.com
