The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) is asking members to consider submitting nominations to put forward for the position of General Secretary of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF).
As a member church, the ELCIC is invited to submit nominations for the chief administrative position of the LWF. Nominations for consideration are to be submitted in writing along with curricula vitae to ELCIC National Bishop Susan C. Johnson (email: email@example.com, fax: 204-984-9185). Deadline for submissions is Thursday, December 4, 2008.
In a May 19, 2008 letter from the current LWF General Secretary, Rev. Dr. Ishmael Noko informed the LWF Council of his intention to conclude his service as General Secretary on October 31, 2010.
The term for General Secretary is seven years and may be renewed for one term.
Nominations received by the ELCIC will be reviewed by its Executive Officers with recommendations to be brought forward to National Church Council for official nomination to the LWF Search Committee. LWF member churches are able to nominate more than one candidate. ELCIC nominations need not be a member of the ELCIC but must belong to an LWF member church.
A job description for the position of LWF General Secretary is available on the ELCIC's website: http://elcic.ca/Leadership/Employment-Opportunities/Job-Postings.cfm
