The Nominations Committee is the volunteer personnel committee of the church. It helps fill vacancies in our volunteer positions, by seeking matches between our members’ gifts and the needs and functions of our various committees and positions. Yearly, during the summer season prior to our annual fall Charge Conference, the Nominations committee prepares a slate of nominations of persons to take office beginning January 1. Those nominations are brought to Charge Conference for election. Vacancies that arise during the year, between Charge Conferences, are filled by finding persons to accept a nomination to fill that vacancy, and then bringing their nomination to the next Church Council for election (The Church Council is the arm of the Charge Conference, between Charge Conferences).
The Nominations Committee meets during the summer to prepare for Charge Conference, and as needed during the year. It is chaired by the Pastor.
