no when an elder is removed he cant be reappointed as an elder.
If an elder is removed, then it is either for disqualification and/or judicial reasons. In either case, it is usually 3 years before said brother can be reappointed, then he must be reappointed as an ministerial servant first. The length of time he serves as a ministerial servant before he is reappointed as an elder depends on several variables: a) the original reason he was removed; b) the need of the local congregation; c) the mindset of the local BOE; d) the mindset of the local CO.
a) if he was removed for judicial reason, it would likely be longer than 3 years before he is reappointed, depending on the "offense". A subset of a) would be the effect on the local congregation if he would be reappointed as anything. If what the elder did was well known and caused a disturbance, it may be much much longer if ever the brother is reappointed as anything.
b) The 3 year rule is pretty much set in stone before reappointing as a MS. I know former elders who, after waiting the requisite 3 years being appointed MS, only had to wait one visit after that before being reappointed as an elder. The appointment as MS was a mere formality. Again, this will depend much on c) and d).
If a brother resigned for personal reasons, he could be reappointed a year later. (I know an elder for whom it was only 10 months, but it had been 2 CO visits, who was reappointed an elder after "stepping aside" for personal reasons. He is now the PO).
I was deleted as a MS long time ago....it was officially judicial, but only on a technicality so that the 3 year rule could be applied. I was recently removed (NON judicial) as an elder. The new congo I moved to wanted to reappoint me immediately. They had to wait on the letter from my previous congo. Since the letter said I was removed not that I had resigned, the 3 year rule would have applied to me.. Ironically, I could have been reappointed within the year if I had resigned instead like they wanted me to do.........except that I dont give a crap anymore and started fading away as planned...LOL.
