Central's Leaders

2022 leadership

Each year it is the job of the Nominations/Lay Leadership Committee to select a group of folks to fill the various offices of the church. Some of these are yearly elections (Council Chairperson for example) while others of them are to be part of a three-year class (Trustees or SPRC for example). Most UMC churches nominate church officers in September and October. They then elect those officers as part of the annual Charge Conference that our District Superintendent calls sometime in November. The officers then serve for the calendar year (Jan.1 through Dec. 31).


For the past several years CUMC has followed the Annual Conference calendar (June 1 through May 31) for our officers. But after discussions between the outgoing pastors, our lay leader and the incoming pastor; and with the approval of the Nominations Committee it was decided that CUMC is going to delay the nominations until the fall of 2020 and elect the officers at the regular Charge Conference. This was decided because CUMC is going through so many changes and transitions now, that will continue in the weeks ahead. This added time will allow the new pastor, the Reverend Miriam Smith, to get settled in and get a feel for Central.


What that means is that the current elected leaders are being asked to agree to remain at their post through the end of the year. That will allow the Nominations Committee to go through the nomination and election process in the fall.  If one of our current leaders cannot continue through December, the Nominations Committee will nominate someone to complete their term.  Those new officers can be elected by the Church Council this summer.
