NOMINATIONS

ELECTION PROCEDURE FOR OTHER EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

The position of Executive Officer – Secretary/Treasurer will be voted upon at District council, April 28, 2022. The nominations for this position will be received through our website and through the mail, Nov. 15 – midnight Jan. 15.

Below is the section from our MDC bylaws that outlines the procedure we must follow:

B) Election Procedure for other Executive Officers

1) The Executive Presbyters shall act as a Nominations Committee for candidates for executive office other than Superintendent.
Any Certified, Licensed or Ordained minister in good standing with the Minnesota District Council of the Assemblies of God may submit a name of a qualified minister to the Nominations Committee for consideration. Churches affiliated with the General Council or the Minnesota District Council of the Assemblies of God shall also be entitled to submit a name for consideration, to the District Secretary, by action of the church board.

2) The Executive Presbyters shall establish a procedure that provides as many means as feasible to submit a name to the Nominations Committee.
Names must be submitted no later than January 15 of the year of the election of said Executive Officer to be considered by the Nominations Committee.

3) Nominations Procedure.

  • All names which receive 15 nominations or more will automatically be placed into nomination for District Council action, unless the person declines to have their name placed into nomination or the Nominations Committee is aware of reasons the person would not meet the qualifications for the position for which they have been nominated.
  • The Nominations Committee will examine all other names presented to it and determine if they meet the qualification for the position for which they have been nominated. Following this examination, the Nominations Committee will vote on which names to present to the District Council for action.
  • The Nominations Committee will submit the names so chosen to Minnesota District ministers and churches 15 days prior to the District Council.

4) All names thus presented shall be balloted upon until a candidate shall have received a two-thirds majority of the votes cast.

5) If no such majority shall have been reached after three electoral ballots, the three candidates having the highest number of votes in the third electoral ballot shall be the only nominees to be further voted upon, and all other names shall be eliminated.

C) Qualifications for Executive Officers

1) The Executive Officers of the Minnesota District shall be elected at the annual District Council.

2) The term of office shall be four years with not more than one term expiring in any given year.

3) All officers shall be:

  • ministers who have been ordained no less than three years,
  • and of mature experience and ability,
  • and shall have been members of the Minnesota District for at least one year.
