C&MA Presidential Election


General Council 2017 in Columbus, Ohio, May 30–June 4 is a presidential election year. The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) Presidential Election Sub-Committee consists of the three officers of the Council Nominations Committee (chairperson, vice chairperson, secretary) and three members appointed from among the C&MA Board of Directors. This committee began working in May, gathering information as directed by the Manual of the C&MA. The Committee appreciates your prayers on its behalf for this important task. We eagerly desire to be filled daily with the Holy Spirit and have the mind of Christ as we seek to serve the Lord in this capacity.

The Presidential Search Committee invites you to submit names to be considered for the Office of President for the term of August 1, 2017–July 31, 2021. We ask that you secure the approval of the person to enter the process before submitting his name. All submissions should be sent to the chairperson of the Presidential Election Sub-Committee, Rev. David L. Gilmore, at [email protected]. Such submissions should include the person’s name you are submitting, current contact information, name of the C&MA church where he is an active member, and a statement that the person so nominated has indeed given his permission to be considered for the Office of President. Please also include your full name, your current contact information, and where you are an active C&MA church member.

Submission of the names of persons willing to be considered need to be received by Rev. David L. Gilmore no later than November 30, 2016.

It is the understanding of the Presidential Search Committee that President John P. Stumbo is desirous of running for another four-year term as president. It is our desire to be faithful to the process as outlined in the Manual of the C&MA.

Sincerely in Christ,

2017 Presidential Election Sub-Committee:
Rev. David L. Gilmore, chairperson
Rev. Jorge Cuevas, vice chair
Mrs. Amy I. Nehlsen, secretary
