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