Home Meet the GBNC Timeline Application Role FAQs



To be considered for Governing Board nomination, you must be a member in good standing within MCC who, in the sole discretion of the UFMCC, has spiritual quality and leadership, is mature, has sound judgment, and has a proven record of accomplishment. (Finalists must submit to a background check before the slate is announced.)

As a global denomination, we encourage applications from individuals from diverse backgrounds (age, nationality, ethnicity, race, language, gender, and ability) and are prioritizing global representation from all regions.

While we encourage applications from those for whom English is not their first language, it is important to note that the business of the Governing Board is conducted in English. Candidates will therefore require a basic fluency in English to participate fully, and might need to seek out additional translation services to support their work.

We are particularly interested in core competencies and complementary skills such as policy development,  finance,  human resources, or legal skills. All Governing Board meetings are conducted virtually, so access to the internet is essential.
