A new video that promotes nominations for Church of the Brethren leadership and helps explain the nomination and election process at Annual Conference is now available at www.brethren.org/ac/nominations. Also on this web page are a list of currently open positions and nomination forms.
The video can be downloaded from the denomination’s Vimeo site by districts and congregations that would like to show it in places without good Internet access. To download the video from the nominations web page, click on the title at the top left. Once seeing the video on Vimeo, scroll down to find “download” or an icon with an arrow pointing down beneath the video. Clicking that, the video will download.
The video was created by Nominating Committee chair Kurt Borgmann at the urging of the committee, which is made up of members of the Standing Committee of district delegates to Annual Conference. It calls church members across the denomination to consider making nominations of names for church leadership positions that are open for election. At a little under 5 minutes in length, the video is suitable for use in congregational worship services, Bible study and adult Sunday school classes, and other church settings.
