General Assembly of the Church of God in Michigan

Business Committee
2020 Ratifications

Dear General Assembly Member,

As the Business Committee of the General Assembly each year, we are responsible to provide a ballot to the Assembly for ratification. Each year we seek your help in finding quality leaders to guide the ministries of our State. The quality and effectiveness of any ministry is directly related to the abilities of its leaders. We are seeking gifted and passionate leaders to continue the important work of our cooperative ministries.

The General Assembly of the Church of God in Michigan is a representative body made up of lay and clergy members from each of our congregations. Each year during our General Assembly, we ratify a Vice-Chair of the Assembly, and ratify leaders to each of the following: Church Health Ministry, Credentials Ministry, Pastoral Health Ministry, Youth Ministry, Audit Committee, Business Committee, Personnel Committee, and Program Committee. A brief job description for each of these ministries is online at micog.org/ministries. We would like recommendations of both lay and clergy persons who fit these positions. Please include a sentence or two explaining why you are recommending them. Be sure to include their name, address, phone, and email information. You may also recommend yourself, if you feel called and gifted for any of these positions. We are always looking for new leaders interested in serving beyond their local environment. You may respond to this request by mail or email. We will contact those you recommend to see if they are willing to be added to our pool of leadership candidates.

We meet May 2, 2019, to work on the nominations and need your recommendations to us no later than April 22, 2019. Thank you for your immediate attention to this vital task. If you have any questions feel free to contact the Service Center at (800) 369-5890 or email micog@micog.org.

Please note your 2018 General Assembly Minutes are included with the 'downloads and links'.

Thank you again for helping us serve the Church across Michigan!
