#gc2020 Clergy Delegate Profile – Unique Skills, Knowledge, and Gifts

I have submitted a profile to be considered for election as a clergy delegate from the Great Plains Annual Conference to the 2020 General Conference, South Central Jurisdictional Conference, or as an alternate. You can find a list of all clergy and laity who have submitted profiles from the Great Plains Conference here. Here is one of my responses to a question from the delegate profile:

What unique skills, knowledge, and/or gifts would you bring to the delegation?

I have served in a variety of local church settings, including rural, county seat, and suburban. I am comfortable with uncertainty and conflict. I am willing and able to act experimentally to help our church(es) continue to share God’s love with all our neighbors. As part of a group, I am able to name with clarity where the body is trying to go. I have a passion for our way of practicing the Christian faith. I possess precise knowledge of our polity and parliamentary procedure. You can count on me for dry humor and a good laugh.

Questions? Thoughts? Leave a comment or send me an email.
