The Committee on Nominations for the 2021 District Conference of The Canadian Pacific District (May 18-19, 2021) is prepared to receive Nomination Papers from candidates who wish to be considered for nomination to the position of District Superintendent.
The CPD is a complex, diverse family of 82 churches and ministries, located in British Columbia and the Yukon. We are poised and in a healthy place for the next chapter. Effective systems, training resources, and a strong team are in place.
In light of this and with changing world events we need a leader who values the foundation that has been built and is able to navigate the unknown currents of change. Candidates of interest will exemplify a life lived in intimacy with Jesus, demonstrate exemplary character and spiritual maturity, and be members of an Alliance church.
Priorities of the next District Superintendent of the CPD will include the following:
Culture – Embody and multiply a culture of spiritual development and vitality, in alignment with the national vision, that compels us to Spirit-led risk-taking.
Nurture – Lead as a bridge builder and advocate of our diversity who identifies, develops, and supports leaders to be Christ-Centred, Spirit-Empowered, and Mission-Focused.
Venture – Courageously explore, embrace, catalyze, and support new and varied expressions of the Gospel that are context specific.
Structure – Strengthen and build on a strong foundation of administrative and governance structures to facilitate Kingdom growth.
The Committee shall only receive nomination papers from individuals who are committed and able to meet the criteria for a director as outlined in the corporate documents of the District, and who:
(a) are Canadian citizens,
(b) are approved for licensing by the C&MA in Canada before they submit their papers,
(c) have significant Canadian ministry leadership experience and
(d) have completed a current criminal record check that includes a vulnerable sector check
