We’re now in Pentecost and heading quickly towards General Convention at the end of the month. Â At convention, we elect members to the Executive Council, which functions kind of like the vestry of a church or the board Â of a non-profit.
There are not a lot of good ways for deputies across the country to get to know the EC candidates, so we thought we would provide a small opportunity for candidates toÂ answer a question about what we try to do here at Acts8 – Proclaim resurrection.
Acts8 will not be endorsing any particular candidates. Â We will simplyÂ post the answers here on our website as a resource.
The question, to be answered in 350 words or less so we can list them all in one post is:
“How will you share your love ofÂ Jesus inside and outside the church, and howÂ must the church change in order to be more effective at proclaimingÂ resurrection?”
Candidates who do not have a blog can simply send their answer as noted below and it will be published in the summary. Â Those who do will have the full answer published in the summary along with a link to their blog. Â All submissions are due by 5PM Central on June 15.
If you are not an Executive Council candidate and wish to blog or send your answer, we will list those in a section below the candidates. Â It’s a good question for us all.
