Elections (81112-LC-¶249)

Amend ¶249:
Election of leaders- The charge conference, or church conference authorized by the district superintendent, shall elect upon recommendation by the committee on lay leadership of each local church on the pastoral charge, or by nomination from the floor and by the vote of each such local church, at least the following leaders....

Rationale

The intention of this petition is to give full authority and power to the committee on lay leadership. Nominations from the floor will make the committee less decisive and tentative because of the possibility of reversal. Nominations from the floor diminish confidence and will lead to political and personal maneuverings.
