Put Your Gifts and Talents to Work! Contact Committee on Nominations

April 10, 2008

As Annual Conference Session approaches the Conference Committee on Nominations continues to seek to connect passionate, compassionate, visionary, initiative-taking, and spiritual leaders with task groups, activities, structures, agencies, committees and councils that are committed to the primary task of the Annual Conference. We have a deep commitment to inclusiveness and seek to invite clergy, lay, men, women, persons of all ages and abilities, and of different racial and cultural backgrounds and geographic diversity into the work of ministry in and through the Annual Conference.


As Christians, each of us is called to discipleship and to offer our Lord and the Church our gifts and graces. Each of us has been given innate spiritual gifts and talents. The Conference Committee on Nominations is here to help you offer your gifts and graces so that your light will shine – and you will grow as a passionate, compassionate, visionary, initiative-taking, and spiritual leader.
