Due to the cancellation of onsite church services, changes had to be made for any church that had not held elections. Since the onset of Shelter in Place occurred at the time many churches were holding elections, the General Church leaders approved for “local churches that had not had an election before the quarantine to keep the same officers for the next year.” These are the guidelines we are currently following.
With the resignation of Mary Ann Garner as NMI President and the elections essentially on hold, Traci Morgan was appointed as NMI President and Mary Ann Garner filled the vacancy on the board. Mary Ann will continue to work with NMI as Vice-President and she will also continue as Recording Secretary for the board.
We welcome Traci to the Spiritual Team Leaders as we continue to make decisions for our local church. She will be leading Nazarene Missions International at the local church and keeping the church board informed of local activities.
Upon return to onsite services, further decisions will be made regarding elections.
Please be in prayer for the decisions that must be made about services, finances, and a new Youth Director and worship leader. Our desire is to be in God’s will and look for ways we can meet spiritual needs as well as physical needs of people in our community.
