Nominations

Opportunities for Leadership

As members of Shining Waters Regional Council, you know the voices who could offer fresh perspectives and insights. This is a time to look not just for members of the church who have been active in former Presbyteries and Conference, but also for those who are skilled and active in local communities. We are excited about the prospect of finding new voices for a new time.

We are also envisioning the possibility of committees and commissions with a good representation from racialized communities or other groups that have traditionally been marginalized in church decision-making. We are seeking people who reflect the diversity of Shining Waters Regional Council, including but not limited to, cultural and ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, geography and age.

Please share this information widely within communities of faith and across the regional council, and prayerfully consider whether you, or someone  you know, may be called to serve in this way at this time in the life of Shining Waters Regional Council. Terms of office for most positions are typically for three years, renewable once.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in more information please contact us by email at KirstyHunter@united-church.ca.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Kirsty Hunter,
Chair, Shining Waters Nominations Committee
