Church Elections

Volunteer... Nominate... Vote...

Here is a saying you can trust. If anyone wants to be a leader in the church, they want to do a good work for God and people
[1 Timothy 3:1].

Elections Meeting 

Our annual Elections Meeting will be held on  Sunday, December 05 via in-person and virtual forum. This year, we will have a small election to fill three open Vestry positions.

The chair of the Elections Committee is Abdullah Skerritt who is ably assisted and supported by Vice Chair, Teresa Gonzales, along with Denton Guy-Williams, Jamila S. Moumeni, and Mathias Mogekwu.

The committee will utilize the same digital hybrid process — virtual and in-person — that was designed and successfully executed by the 2020 committee.  The process provides three voting options: online, in-person, mail-in ballots.  This precedence-setting exercise proved to be the ideal solution for this unprecedented COVID-19 situation and is equally suited for use during “normal” times.
