Post Ok Who is your choice for Executive Committee & Council of 18 caveator
I know that this board is slow. I drop in occasionally and post very little anymore, but I thought I would keep the tradition going.

Before anyone drops the condemnation for being political, the reality is that this discussion is happening all over the Church of God right now, so we might as well have it here out in the open. Wink

I’ll stay away from naming names. I’m more concerned that the COG is seemingly forever entrenched in the mindset that says unless you’re Caucasian and have gray/silver/white hair you will not be part of any high level decision making in the denomination.
I want to see diversity at the highest levels of CoG leadership, and not just an occasional token.

For what it’s worth, my pastor sees Tim Hill as the Pentecostal equivalent to the pope, and unless he’s re-elected the denomination will succumb to a wave of liberalism.

I smile at the 'liberalism' thing. Most pastors today cannot remember the church I was in in the 1940-50 era. Compared to that time the COG is already more liberal than many Baptist/Pentecostal groups.

That is time changes things. HOwever I do agree that the top level of leadership needs diversity. Wink
Cool

I think your pastor may be right! The COG is at a critical place where we have to get it righ on our leadership. I also believe in diversity, but not just for the sake of diversity. For instance, liberation theology is infiltrating our Latin American seminaries. I don’t want to place someone in our leadership who adheres to that worldview, just to create diversity.

I don’t have a full list of names yet, but I don’t mind sharing some that I am voting for:

Executive Committee
Tim Hill
Gary Lewis
Tom Madden
Tony Stewart
John Childers

Council
Melvin Shuler
Bill Lee
Scott Sheppard
David Smith
Jason Daughdrill
Joe Dobbins
Edwin Lipsey
Dennis McGuire

I think we should do like Congress and keep electing the same handful of names recycled year after year until they're retirement age. Acts Enthusiast
