Expression of Interest
We are using the self-nomination process. Discerning that you feel called and are ready to answer that call is an important part of participating in the regional council. In the regional council, there are decision making bodies and resource pools. Either as a member of the resource pool or one of the decision-making bodies, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the church and develop skills of benefit to your home community of faith.
The decision-making bodies of the Executive, Congregational Support Commission, Human Resources Commission and Discipleship and Justice Commission meet regularly to make the decisions entrusted to the regional council.
At the Spring Meeting or Fall Gathering, the regional council fills vacancies through the election of members. These positions are open to anyone who is a full member in good standing in a congregation within the bounds of the regional council. If you would be willing to let your name stand as a nominee, please click here or scroll down to the Expression of Interest form to apply. This information (minus your personal contact details) will be available to regional council members for consideration before voting.
There may also be vacancies throughout the year. These Expressions of Interest go before the next Executive for discussion and/or approval.
If you prefer a more time-limited involvement, please volunteer to assist in one of the resource pools. Details regarding the resource pools are in the Governance Handbook, 2021. All resource pool volunteers will be contacted directly by the Commission selected.
Expressions of Interest can be made here.
