United Church names new General Secretary and Moderator
United Church names new General Secretary and Moderator.
With the second (and therefore final constitutionally allowed) term of the Rt. Rev. Henly Bernard as Moderator coming to an end at Synod 2011 (April 25th - 28th 2011), voting for the new Moderator has been completed within the time prescribed in our Constitution, and Rev. Oliver Daley declared Moderator-elect. General Secretary, Rev. Dr. Collin Cowan, noted that Rev. Daley’s devotion to the Church, commitment to its growth and development, his clarity of purpose and concern for the well being of the whole people of God, as well as gifts as an inspirational leader, preacher and teacher, rendered him a most suitable leader for the Church, where he is already known as “a pastor par excellence to all our Ministers”. The search for the new General Secretary to replace the Rev. Dr. Cowan (see earlier article below) has also been completed, resulting in the unanimous call of the Rev. Norbert Stephens (currently a Regional Deputy General Secretary) to be our next General Secretary. See additional details here
