Greg Powell and Jody Dudley are attending General Council 43 as two of 25 BC Conference Commissioners in Oshawa, ON, July 21–27, 2018. They were nominated by Kootenay Presbytery when we gathered in Cranbrook this Spring and elected by the court of BC Conference in June. They will be involved in the ratifying of the Remits presented by the last General Council and in the consideration of many proposals submitted for discussion and decision by the various courts of the United Church of Canada.
Although nominated by Kootenay Presbytery to represent the BC region on the new Denominational Council (should the Three Court Model Remit be ratified by General Council) David Boyd is one of several not being recommended by BC Conference for the Denominational Executive. David appreciated the support and encouragement of the presbytery and BC Conference and wish the Executive well. Those nominated can be reviewed in this proposal to GC43
Laural Hermakin, minister at Windermere Valley Shared Ministry will replace Cheryl Swedberg on the current BC Conference Executive Board and what it will morph into, should the Three Court Model Remit be ratified by General Council.
