Post THE LOVE OF GOD
Does anyone have any idea who will be the General Overseer next year? I know we vote on it but usually, there is some idea who might get it. I think Tim Hill is a fine man - very good. I know he can't run again. Friendly Face

I was not aware of that. I thought it was only for 4 years. Thank you for correcting me.

When you say "marked improvements", how do you mean?

Can someone please list the reasons why Tim Hill should get another four years? What accomplishments are attributed to him so far as advancing the kingdom of God and the church of God.

Under his watch has their been an increase in churches planted? Growth in missions? Youth ministries on the increase?

Asking because I am truly interested even if I don't have a vote.

Quantifiable Metrics such as:
1) Increase in members, finances or new churches
2) Improved moral among the bishops
3) Better benefits for retired ministers
4) Lower expenses

I don't know that we can realistically measure the success of the General Assembly or mark improvements by the rubrics you've listed. Taking in members, planting new churches, and increasing membership are not usually done at a a biennial convention of ours or any other ecclesiastical organization. But there has definitely been emphasis on some of these things (and even resolutions passed that promoted them such as a task force for church planting and revitalization as well as a study on aging ministers). The purpose of the General Assembly is not to "lower expenses" but to provide an opportunity for ministers and laity to have an organized business meeting (where everything from doctrine to finances are discussed and voted upon). The Assembly also provides a worship experience, as well as having fellowship with some of our global constituency. Additionally, at each of the GA worship services, a significant emphasis was placed upon the pentecostal experience. It was very refreshing to say the least.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on better retirement for ministers though. Perhaps you could even form it into a motion to be presented at the upcoming Assembly? At the business session at the General Assembly in 2018, thirty-three items were adopted, bylaws were updated, compensation for pastors (including adding sabbaticals) was passed and adding even a prerequisite that state overseers had to have pastoral experience. Perhaps it is time to overhaul our retirement system and even do something proactively for currently retired ministers.

Regarding morale of the Bishops? I can only speak for my self and my inner circle friends and our morale is high.

Post Eddie Robbins
When you ask a large group of people to recommend a cell phone or internet service, you will get pros and cons for every company. People are passionate about it too! The same goes for our COG leadership. Y’all could vote in Jesus and some would complain. Each of these leaders love the COG and want to do what’s best for the church. It’s just they have different methods and ideology on how to make it happen and many won’t agree. As far as I can tell, in my limited knowledge, the current leadership is wonderful. That’s my opinion. Acts-pert Poster

Post In My Humble Opinion MI6
In My Humble Opinion - I cannot vote for Tim Hill. I have seen enough of the side show of self promotion... we need real spiritual leadership. Not Self-promotion.

In My Humble Opinion - I cannot vote for Raymond Culpepper - I do not Trust Him.

In My Humble Opinion - I can Never vote for JD Stephens to any position again. He is the most political person in a COG position.

In My Humble Opinion - It is time for the next generation of leaders to step up...we need leaders that will renew our denominational commitment to Pentecost and take a stand against the new culture church model that has replaced evangelism with marketing, replaced worship with entertainment, and preaching the Word with conversational talks.

The Church of God grows more restrictive each Assembly Period with the consolidation of power into fewer hands and for longer periods of time.
We took action when past leaders with life time appointments made decisions that jeopardized the Ministry of the Denomination Now we are slipping back into a similar leadership climate and most people are not concerned. BUT I AM CONCERNED.

Fewer men in power for longer periods of time is not a good thing.
It is time for a change.

This denomination will not survive if we continue on the course that we are currently on.

Wow! Could you expound on "self promotion" and "trust" issues. These are some broad accusations.

Post M16 Way Off Base Restorationman
The post of M16 is an indictment against this forum and should be taken down. Opinion is one thing but trolling toxicity is
something else. Along the way, the men on the current EC have not given M16 what M16 personally wanted. or
at least they represent someone in past leadership who didnt. That is more likely the case here. The current
EC is possibly the most open, available, transparent and results oriented administration the COG has had in many
many years. If Hill and his team are a sideshow, I cant wait to see what happens when they
hit center-stage.

I sincerely hope the administrators will delete this entire thread.

Post Dow Moses
I don’t have a dog in this fight, but M16 has attached men we respect. Even if he has a charge he should be specific. His post is nothing more than slander behind a mask. I don’t understand why this is not deleted. This is Christianity at it’s worst.
