Executive Council Passes Elected Official Eligibility Measure

Cleveland, TN–In its most recent meeting, the Church of God International Executive Council convened a special order to discuss the potential for advancement of those currently serving in elected positions who will have tenure remaining in their current position at the 2024 General Assembly.

After a careful review of the Church of God Minutes, Robert’s Rules of Order, multiple parliamentary guidebooks and resources, and a report from a Special Task Force made up of former executive committee members, parliamentarians, and legal experts, the International Executive Council unanimously determined that there is no provision, guideline, or precedent that would prohibit an elected official with tenure remaining in their current position from advancing by being nominated (and elected) to another office at the upcoming General Assembly.

The Council was in Cleveland for their regularly scheduled session on April 17-18, 2023, meeting at the Leadership and Communications Center. As part of their agenda, the Council participated in a note burning ceremony on April 18 celebrating the retirement of debt on the expansion of the International Offices.

The 79th International General Assembly of the Church of God is slated for July 8-12, 2024 at the Indianapolis Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.
