Nominations for the President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain

Nominations for the 2022-23 President are now closed.  Please look out for details of the election process in due course.

Our current President is the Revd Yinka Oyekan, and he will be succeeded by the Revd Geoff Colmer in May 2021.  Please do look at Yinka's Presidential pages on his theme of 'How do we grow from here?'.

We are now inviting nominations for the person who will serve as Baptist Union President in 2022-23.

The President may be female or male, lay or ordained, and will be chosen because of gifts and experience which will help to communicate our Baptists Together vision and mission priorities.

The President should bring their own unique insights and experience into their leadership, and may feel led to bring a particular emphasis within the overall strategy. They will be expected to work closely with the Core Leadership Team (CLT) and General Secretary in informing and communicating the agreed vision, culture and priorities of Baptists Together.

The person elected will serve as Vice-President during 2021-22, and will become a member of the CLT Accompanying Group in order to begin to familiarise themselves with our Baptists Together vision, culture and priorities before taking up the lead role during their presidential year.

The consent of the nominee must be sought before nomination.
Nominations must be received by 31 December.
