Mr. David Koch is concluding his first four-year term as Lay Leader of the Eastern Pennsylvania Annual Conference. While Dave is willing to serve another term and The Book of Discipline and Conference Rules allow for this, in the interest of fairness and openness to God’s will, this announcement is being made so that if there are other willing and qualified persons interested in serving God in this way, they may be nominated. All persons are urged to prayerfully consider this matter and share the information with other persons.
Each person receiving a minimum of ten (10) written nominations will be considered at a meeting of the Board of Lay Ministry on April 9, 2018 and brought before the 2018 Laity Session of Annual Conference on Thursday morning, June 14, 2018. The Laity Session will finalize the nomination after which it will be taken to the Annual Conference for a consensus vote.
All persons will be considered regardless of current leadership positions they now hold. Sample nomination forms may be found on the Conference website. Nominations must be submitted by postal or electronic mail postmarked by March 30, 2018 to: Lay Leader Nomination, c/o George Hollich, 212 West Orchard Drive, Palmyra, PA 17078 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
