eAdventist makes it easy for a church clerk (or conference clerk) to update the list of officers for your church (or conference). Keeping this information current helps both the church and conference. To get started, find your church (or conference) using “search” under the “Organizations” menu. It should look like this:
Add a new office
You want to add the new “Pastor”. Since there is no current pastor listed, you will click the “New office” button. Now you can select “Pastor” from the “Office title” list. Add an optional “Custom title” if your pastor will have some local variation on the standard title — “Family Pastor”.
Click the “Select Person” link and use the “Select Person” screen to choose your new pastor’s name. You will be selecting from people who belong to your church (or conference). If you cannot find your pastor’s name, check with your conference clerk (conference clerks can check with the eAdventist team). You also choose whether officer mail/email should use the officer’s home address or the church’s address.
Change an officer
To select a new Head Deaconess, click on the “Deaconess – Head” link (in the “Title” column). On the “Edit Officer” page, click the “select person” link to choose the new officer.
Keep an officer
When the “Change date” is more than 4 months ago, you will see a “renew” link. If your Head Deaconess will continue to serve in that position, click the “renew” link to freshen the “Change date”.
Officer is finishing, no current replacement
If the Pathfinder Director is finished his tour of duty and a replacement has not been selected yet, click the “delete” link. This will remove both the “officer” and “office”. Since there is no “undo” for this, eAdventist will ask if you are sure before actually deleting.
It’s always a good idea to verify that your officers’ addresses, phone numbers and email addresses are current while you’re updating this list. That’s it.
