How can you serve?
Do you ever wonder how people get on the Committees presenting at Annual Conference? Committees like Volunteers in Ministry or Evangelism or Conference Finance and Administration? The conference uses a system similar to the local church. We have a Committee on Clergy and Lay Leadership, who receives nominations and contacts people to determine willingness and giftedness to serve.
This year, in an effort to increase transparency in the process, create a more open process to broaden participation particularly among the laity and to increase the racial and contextual equity in leadership roles, the Clergy Lay Leadership has adopted a new process. In addition to making leadership openings known to District Superintendents, Conference Lay Leader, District Lay Leaders, and Committee Chairs, we are also providing a list here.
We invite you to read the leadership openings and nominate any persons you believe have the gifts and willingness to serve, using this Nomination Form. If you have any questions about a particular committee, the name of the Chairperson is listed. If you have questions about the process, please do not hesitate to contact the Director of Connectional Ministries, Rev. Dr. Vicki Gordy-Stith, or Conference Lay Leader, Mrs. Yvonne Jackson, or the Co-Chair of the Committee on Clergy Lay Leadership, Mrs. Denise Snyder. Thank you for helping us become “Connected Christians offering the hope of Jesus Christ to today’s world.”
