Election for the President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain 2019-20
Having received two nominations for the President for the year 2019-20, we are now engaging in an election process to discern our next President after Dave Gregory.
We hope you will be keen to engage with this important decision, and urge as many ministers and churches as possible to be involved in this discernment process. Please do prayerfully consider which candidate you believe should serve our Union as President. Both the candidates have merit, both are skilled and both have the potential to serve our Union well. The question to consider is who is the most appropriate candidate for this particular season in our Union’s life.
