Tenth Biennial Convention of the
Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada
July 21 - 24, 2005
Winnipeg, Manitoba

In Mission for Others

James Garey

Congregation:

Trinity London, ON Past Experience:

Dean, London Conference; Dean, Northern Conference; Secretary, Management Board, ELCIC Office for Resource Development; Chair, Committee for Theological Education and Leadership, Eastern Synod; First Vice President, Kiwanis Club of Forest City; Area Captain, Heart and Stroke Foundation Annual Campaign.

Gifts:

I have 33 years of experience as a parish pastor, the last 18 in larger urban congregations. I have sat upon the boards of many church and community organizations, giving me a good grasp of corporate governance.

Issues of Concern:

The church must be relevant both to its heritage and to society.

Hopes for the Church:

The ELCIC has spent too much time and energy navel-gazing and not enough reaching out to the world. We need to re-emphasize mission outreach.
