The Joint Standing Committee on Nominations for General Convention is seeking applications from persons willing to be nominated for the five elections that will take place at the 79th General Convention being held July 5-13, 2018 in Austin, Texas. Qualifications for each position and numbers to be elected are listed in each section below. The applicant need not be a deputy to apply. We ask all persons to consider prayerfully where their talents may best serve our church. In the unusual circumstance in which an individual feels called to serve through more than one ministry, we ask three things:
- Indicate the area of your greatest strength.
- Submit separate applications for each ministry category
- Supply different references which are relevant to each ministry
Click on each ministry to review the commitments expected. Applications must be received on or before May 10, 2017.
The Application Form
Applications should be submitted online. The Application is available in English, Spanish or French at the following links:
- In English: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/nominee-application-GC2018
- en español: https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/candidato-GC2018
- en français : https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/candidat-GC2018
As explained on the form, you will be unable to complete and submit the application until you upload a recent photo. The photo should be a head shot, similar to a passport picture, and must be uploaded as a .jpg or .png file, at least 300 pixels per side, 300ppi resolution. For questions about uploading a photo please contact the General Convention Office at email@example.com.
The Committee welcomes nominees broadly representative of the constituency of this church and has a mandate to increase diversity. The Committee encourages early submissions.
Please share this information broadly and be active in encouraging the most qualified people you know to apply.
