A Blessed Christmas Season to all GTNGers!
As 2007 ends I am in the final stages of composing a full slate of nominees for the Core Team based on the many volunteers that have expressed interest. The plan is now to convene a Core Team Conference Call in mid-January to elect the class of 2008 (serving through mid-July), 2009, and 2010. Those elected to any of the three classes will be eligible for re-election to a full three-year term at the completion of their terms. We will have a full slate of nine (9) Core Team members, so I look forward to a much more active Core Team in 2008.
After re-forming the Core Team in mid-January, we will spend six months in a discussion and discernment process to determine the future direction of GTNG given the current needs of the church, our demographic within it, the history of GTNG, and the gifts and talents of the new Core Team members. Following that time of discussion and discernment, we will have our Annual Meeting, elect officers, and approve a three-year (2008-2011) plan to move GTNG forward into the future. So, continue to keep us in prayer, stay tuned, and be prepared to weigh in at whatever point in time you wish!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
