Delegate packets were sent to constituents this past week. Enclosed was a letter from the president requesting for four more years to begin implementation of the strategic plan a plan we have yet to see! Was it included in your packet? The brochure sent out to churches two weeks ago is not the 50 page document that is supposed to be posted on the website and disseminated to constituents at least fourteen days prior to the constituency meeting. How can the conference expect us to effectively become familiar with a 50 page plan in fourteen days even though that is the minimum requirement consistent with our bylaws? If you click on the Strategic Information Sheet the top of the tab identifies the document as a “Sell Sheet.”
Our current incumbent wants a nomination but has yet to produce the document that everybody wants to see. Sources inside the small committee are not confident that the incumbent will receive the nomination. Regardless of how we vote we have to ask God are things “decent and in order?” Can our current leadership make this happen? Everyone has to vote according to what they believe God will lead them to do.
I will post the nominee on this website when it is released and confirmed. Continue to check this blog for the latest information.
One thing that is for sure is that we cannot continue with a plan that still takes secretive measures. Delegates should not be expected to vote on something “sprung” on them at the last minute. Think about it, is this a lack preparedness or transparency?
Here is a significant and transparent challenge how long will it take the Southwest Region Conference to release the nominee after today’s meeting?
