NominATIONS FOR THE 2018 bALLOT
Did you know that our district runs on volunteers? Each committee, comission and task team is comprised of Virlina members whose gifts and skills far outweigh those of the district ministers. That's why it's so important that we receive nominations from around the district. We seek to find people who not only have a passion to serve, but have experiences and knowledge that then help do the ministry and work of the district.
2018 Ballot Positions: Moderator-Elect (non-clergy), Standing Committee Delegate, District Conference Program and Arrangements Committee, Nominating and Personnel (Areas 3, 5 and 6), District Board (Areas 2, 3, 4, 6 and at large).
