Nomination process open for general board, moderators

Nominations due Nov. 1, 2016

The General Nominating Committee will be meeting in December to nominate a moderator team and the next GNC class of the general board. Each biennium, the GNC seeks nominations from across the life of the church for qualified persons to serve in this capacity.

The moderator team serves a two-year term (the moderator-elect serves for four years). The GNC members of the general board serve a four-year term. The paragraphs from The Design that describe the role of the moderators and general board members  can be found here.(2 pages)

The GNC has the responsibility of ensuring diverse leadership in the life of the church, including: clergy/laity, male/female, racial/ethnic, age and geographic representation.

We are also seeking to develop a database of persons with specific gifts and skills.  This database will be available to general ministries who are seeking qualified board members.

If you know of a person who is qualified and gifted to provide faithful leadership to the church, please nominate them using by clicking this online nomination form  Nominations should be received no later than Nov. 1, 2016.

  1. I might be interested in nominating someone but I cannot find the “attachment” defining the roles. Did I miss it?
