Nominees sought to serve as PNW Associate Conference Lay Leader

We are seeking nominees to serve as PNW Associate Conference Lay Leader (ACLL). Angelina Goldwell, our amazing ACLL for the last four years, is moving on to new challenges. The role, responsibilities and qualifications are the same as for the Conference Lay Leader(CLL) and will work with the CLL in all areas. A full description of the role can be found in The Book of Discipline, 2016, ¶607. Here’s a brief extract from that paragraph:

  • “The conference lay leader is the elected leader of conference laity and will have responsibility for fostering awareness of the role of the laity both within the congregation and through their ministries in the home, workplace, community and world in achieving the mission of the Church and enabling and supporting lay participation in the planning and decision-making processes of the annual conference, district and local church in cooperation with the bishop, district superintendents and pastors.”

Of specific focus for the next several years will be strengthening the Lay Servant Ministries team of the PNW Board of Laity. We are actively developing laity leadership skills through certification paths, and in other areas laity seek to deepen and strengthen all laity gifts.

If you are interested in engaging in this new level of interaction, boldly championing laity leadership development and creating learning opportunities for learning, this job is for you. We will hold an election toward the end of the GNW Laity Session on June 14.

Please email Nancy Tam Davis to express interest in serving in this role or if you have additional questions. Nominations will also be taken before the vote during the laity session on June 14. Please do not nominate someone else without their consent.
