Member of St Paul Lutheran Church, Cambridge ON
Experience as a chair of the Board of Governors, Waterloo Lutheran Seminary, and member of other community boards. Active on stewardship committee and planning for stewardship events.;
One of the things I have learned in my various board positions is to think in terms of the large picture, yet still be able to relate in a micro way to all faces of the organization. I am open to learn more about the pension and actuarial process.;
In terms of this nomination, the large issue is how new models of ministry may be developed as needed and how all the changes in professional leadership in the church will be reflected in GSI services.;
My concerns for the future can be summed up in the seeming trend to diminishing financial resources and an age-based demographic pointing to exponentially diminishing human resources. I would hate to see professional leadership sacrificed as a result. It continues to be my hope that new models for ministry will develop, that a "new" church will arise.
