The Conference Nominating Committee follows a process which begins with people submitting Profile Sheets to convey their areas of interest. These Profile Sheets are the first and primary resource for the committee when filling leadership vacancies annually and throughout the year. This process shifts the responsibility for being nominated from the committee to individual clergy and laity of the NTC.
The “Leadership Nominations Booklet” details all committees and positions available. In 2021, these positions include a new class for the Board of Trustees and all CCYM leadership and youth lay leaders representing each district. Additionally, the Nominations Committee will fill the balance of unfilled terms for individuals who opt to step away from a previously-assigned role. Those interested in serving can use the booklet to research the various opportunities and discern where they feel called to serve, based on position descriptions and their gifts and graces. For our leadership groups to do effective and faithful work, the group members need to be people with a special interest in a specific area and pertinent gifts and experience.
Interested persons may complete the Profile Sheet online. The Profile Sheet serves as the most important source of information for this process and provides the Nominations Committee with basic information that will allow the committee to place the most qualified person into each vacancy — with a commitment for inclusive leadership.
The recommended report by the Nominating Committee goes to the Core Leadership Team and Extended Cabinet to assure that the report is inclusive and represents NTC membership. The final report is presented at Annual Conference for approval.
The witness and work of the North Texas Conference depends on clergy and laity who are willing to share their gifts and serve in leadership positions.
Please email Rev. Andy Lewis, Clergy Assistant to Bishop McKee, with any questions.
