Conference Committee on Nominations

The Nomination Committee is working hard to deepen the pool of lay and clergy that are interested in serving on the conference level.  In an effort to provide our Districts and Conference with innovative, qualified and effective leadership, we would like to identify persons with passion, gifts and a commitment to serve beyond their local church. If you believe that you are that person,  please complete the West Ohio Conference Leadership Interest Form. We will reach out to you when there is a position open that matches your gifts and graces.  Please be advised that this may not be immediately but we will keep your interest form on hand.
