The Nomination Process: How to 'Express Interest'
"The Holy Spirit moves through each of us in unique ways"
Our nomination and appointment process draws on biblical traditions of discernment and invites everyone to be a part of discerning who might be called to lead and serve in our church today. You are invited to consider the available opportunities carefully and prayerfully before submitting a nomination. You may also wish to consult 'More about Discernment' as you consider who God is calling to serve in these ways. There are a number of opportunities for enthusiastic and skilled people to serve London Conference committees. The challenge is to match the right person to the right position.

Consult the document More about Discernment.
(Follow this link Available Opportunities at UCC if you wish to review opportunities at the national committee level - the work of the General Council is carried out by committees and task groups.
The London Conference Nominations Committee meets at least twice in the year, before the Annual Meeting of Conference, to discern who is being called to the various vacancies. Nominating yourself does not guarantee a position. The Nominations Committee will strive for a balance of gifts, skills, gender, lay or ministry, and geographic diversity.
Recommendations will be made to the Annual Meeting of Conference in May. Recommendations may also be made to the Conference Executive between Conference Annual Meetings. If you are appointed to a committee, you will be notified and your term will begin at the Rise of Conference or such other time as designated by the Conference Executive.
