Deadline to submit lay leader nominations April 15

Are you feeling called to serve the Oregon-Idaho Conference as our next lay leader? Any lay member of an Oregon-Idaho congregation can be elected lay leader and the term typically lasts four years. A lay member may suggest themselves or nominate another person using the attached form. These nomination forms should be submitted by April 15 for the Board of Lay Ministry to review and get them prepared for pre-Conference reports so that lay members to Annual Conference can elect a new leader during the online laity election session on June 14. Nominations will also be accepted from the “floor” of the online laity session.
