It is an honor to serve our denomination in this capacity. We are tasked with preparing a slate of Governing Board candidates for the election to be held at the 2019 General Conference; and we take on this responsibility seriously.

Our success depends in part on you. The next members of the Governing Board are in your churches, ministries, connections, and affiliations, and the GBNC needs your help to find them. When the nomination period opens, we invite you to nominate qualified individuals for consideration.

We have established an email address to receive feedback and questions regarding our work. That email address is [email protected] We welcome your input as we embark on this task, and will be glad to answer questions about procedure and timeline. (For your information, the timeline for our work is included below.) Do keep in mind, however, we cannot answer confidential questions about our ongoing work (i.e., such as whether a particular person has been nominated, etc.), nor can we answer questions sent to individual members of the GBNC.

Finally, we ask that you join us in continued prayer for our denomination and for the work of both the GBNC and the Moderator Nominating Committee.

In Christ’s Service,

Governing Board Nominating Committee
