MCC Governing Board Nominating Committee
Greetings from the 2018–2019 MCC Governing Board Nominating Committee (GBNC)! It is an honor to serve our denomination in this capacity. We are tasked with preparing a slate of Governing Board candidates for the election to be held at the 2019 General Conference; and we take on this responsibility seriously.

Our success depends in part on you. The next members of the Governing Board are in your churches, ministries, connections, and affiliations, and the GBNC needs your help to find them. When the nomination period opens, we invite you to nominate qualified individuals for consideration.

We have established an email address to receive feedback and questions regarding our work. That email address is  GBNC@MCCchurch.net . We welcome your input as we embark on this task, and will be glad to answer questions about procedure and timeline. (For your information, the timeline for our work is included below.) Do keep in mind, however, we cannot answer confidential questions about our ongoing work (i.e., such as whether a particular person has been nominated, etc.), nor can we answer questions sent to individual members of the GBNC.

Finally, we ask that you join us in continued prayer for our denomination and for the work of both the GBNC and the Moderator Nominating Committee.

In Christ’s Service,

Governing Board Nominating Committee
Rev. Tijuana Gray, Chair, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA

Metropolitan Community Churches is celebrating 50 Years!
Founded in 1968,  Metropolitan Community Churches   (MCC) has been at the vanguard of civil and human rights movements by addressing issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, economics, climate change, aging, and global human rights. MCC was the first to perform same gender marriages and has been on the forefront of the struggle towards marriage equality in the USA and other countries worldwide. MCC recognizes a state of need around the world in the areas of human rights and justice, including the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer communities. As people of faith, MCC endeavors to build bridges that liberate and unite voices of sacred defiance. MCC leads from the margins and transforms.
