Request for Nominations

Greetings Covenanters,

As you may be aware, Superintendent Jeff Anderson and his wife Darlene have accepted a call to be the co-directors of the newly-formed region of Serve Globally to the Middle East/North Africa of the ECC. Consequently, we are now in the process to nominate the next superintendent of the Canada Covenant Conference.

Our superintendent sets the vision and pace for the conference. Working with leaders in the Covenant, the Conference, and our local churches, the Superintendent plays a key role in so much that will impact our ministry for years to come.

It is the responsibility of the Canada Conference Leadership Board, serving as the search committee, to present one nominee to the Annual Meeting of the Canada Conference for election in May 2018.  We are so encouraged by the progress and ministry growth that has taken place in our conference and we are eager to see how God will lead in this process to bring about continuing depth and growth of ministry in the future.

The committee is very aware that God has an ideal candidate in mind.  It is our job to discern who that candidate is. We invite you into the process with us, through prayer and through your input. Specifically, we are soliciting nominations from throughout the Covenant.

If you would like to offer a nomination, or nominate yourself, please send your nomination and a brief statement of the reasons that underlie your nomination accompanied by your name, your local Covenant Church and address to  board@covchurch.ca  or mail to:

ECCC Superintendent Search
C/O Terence Barg
P.O. Box 99
Breton, AB  T0C 0P0
Canada

The search committee is committed to seeking the broadest variety of perspectives and to giving voice to every segment, and every individual, in the Conference and throughout the Covenant. We urge you to get involved in this process by offering your responses now. Nominations will be accepted up until December 8, 2017. Only those who are short-listed for face to face interviews will be contacted.  Thank you so very much for your help in this task.

Sincerely in Christ,

Terence Barg
Chair, Canada Conference Search Committee

What if we could imagine living in our neighbourhoods in a way that transformed our whole outlook on faith, hope, and love? Preston Pouteaux writes about how an unlikely journey into beekeeping changed how he saw his neighbors. The Bees of Rainbow Falls reminds us that we matter to our community, that goodness is found all around us, and that new life emerges out of the small and sublime. With the quirky curiosity of a beekeeper and the thoughtful care of a pastor, he gently welcomes readers to step into their own neighbourhoods. What if the very best gift was waiting for you just beyond your front door?

Preston Pouteaux is one of the Pastors at Lake Ridge Community Church in Chestermere, AB.
