New Elder Candidate Process

One of the tasks of ValleyPoint’s Elder Ministry Team is to review elder candidates who are in good standing with the church. Elders shall be active members of the church, fulfilling the qualifications as listed in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9.

After much prayer, an application process, an interview, and a recommendation letter, the Elder Ministry Team presents candidates to the church for 30 days of prayer and review by the church and then membership ratification.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, the church shall be led by the Lead Pastor, directed by the staff, and ruled by the Elder Ministry Team. The term “Elder Ministry Team” shall mean board of directors. The lead pastor is responsible for the daily business of the Church. The elders are God’s provision for the care of the Church’s total welfare. 

The Elder Ministry Team shall consist of the lead pastor, and the total number of elders shall be at least five.

Each elder, other than the lead pastor, shall hold office for seven years, beginning with three years of active service, one year of required elder inactivity, and another three-year period of active service. During the year of inactivity, the elder shall not have Elder Ministry Team voting rights nor responsibility for Elder Ministry Team actions.

New elders, affirmed by the church membership at the annual meeting, begin their term in June. Please pray for our church leaders and plan to attend the annual meeting on Tuesday, May 21st, at 6:30 p.m.

It is the Elder Ministry Team’s pleasure to introduce the following candidates.    

New Elder Candidate Bio – Bob Lannetti


Bob was born in Abington, raised in Bucks County, and now lives in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. Bob has been married to his wife, Margie, for 28 years, and they have three adult children. Bob and Margie also have four grandchildren (two girls and two boys).

Currently, Bob works in operations control at Wells Fargo. Bob and Margie have attended ValleyPoint for 15 years, where they host and lead Connection Groups, enjoying their time building relationships. Bob served on the Elder Ministry Team in the past and was ValleyPoint’s Executive Pastor, using his spiritual gifts of leadership and service to help build our current staff team. Additionally, Bob and Margie have participated in many Compassion Trips.

Bob grew up in church and accepted Christ at a young age. Throughout his life, he has learned to humbly depend on God while being grateful for his grace and forgiveness. Bob’s life verse is Hebrews 13v1-2. “Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters. Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!”

New Elder Candidate Bio – Joseph Monsalvo


Joseph was born in Columbia, South America, raised in New York and Pennsylvania, and now lives in Brookhaven. Joseph has been married to his wife, Courtney, for seven years, and they have two children: a boy, three years old, and a girl, two years old.

Currently, Joseph works as an engineer in project management. Joseph and Courtney have attended ValleyPoint for six years. With spiritual gifts of encouragement and mercy, Joseph believes two abilities the Lord has enabled him to use are thinking/planning macroscopically and appreciating God’s abundant details in his creation.

Joseph was blessed to have been born into a Christ-following family with godly parents and grandparents who faithfully displayed Christ’s love, affection, grace, mercy, and compassion. Through their inspiring guidance, at eight years old, Joseph accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. Joseph’s life verse is Galatians 2v20. “My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

Meet Our Elder Team

Leadership has been critical since the church’s inception. In Titus 1:6-9 and 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Scripture describes both what church leaders should embody and how they should function. Leadership that is servant-oriented, sacrificial, Spirit-led, and guided by Scripture captures the essence of biblical leadership.  

Practically at ValleyPoint Church, the Lead Pastor is responsible for the daily business of the church, and the Elder Ministry Team cares for the spiritual quality and doctrinal integrity of the church. Specifically, Elders shall:

+ Settle all doctrinal questions; establish and implement church policy; exercise general oversight of all operational, business, and financial property matters.

+ Shepherd the members of the church by spiritually knowing, feeding, leading, and protecting; lovingly lead by example.

+ Oversee the preparation of an annual budget for the next fiscal year. 

“This is a trustworthy saying: If someone aspires to be an elder, he desires an honorable position” (1 Timothy 3:1). We are thankful for our elders and the leadership, shepherding, and love they provide for our church family.
