Elections for the 2021 synod convention are already underway. The election process is taking place electronically, and all delegates are taking part.
In the first election, Rev. James Huebner was re-elected to his fourth term as the First Vice President of the Synod. As First Vice President, Huebner will continue to serve on both the Conference of Presidents and the Synodical Council.
The election for the Recording Secretary of the Synod is currently taking place; the final results are not yet in. Rev. Robert Pasbrig currently serves as the Recording Secretary.
Later this week, elections for all other synod positions will be held. The results of those elections will be available prior to the start of the synod convention on July 26.
Please pray that God would guide the delegates as they make their selections and that he would bless those who are elected to serve on our behalf.

Serving together with you in Christ,
