On Tuesday, May 31, the Minnesota Conference office team received word that president-elect, Craig Carr, chose to remain in his current position as ministerial director of the Mid-America Union Conference. Carr shared that it was a very difficult decision, and believes God is leading him to stay where he currently is.

The Minnesota Conference leadership team is working with the Mid-America Union office to continue the process of finding a president.

According to the Minnesota Conference Articles and Bylaws, the Nominating Committee will meet with the Conference Board of Trustees to share names, which will be pursued by the Board.

Pastor Eric Mokua will be transitioning from his position as senior pastor of Faith Church International into his role as vice president for administration effective July 1, 2022.

Please join in praying that God will continue to guide and direct in the search for a new conference president, and that God’s work will continue to prosper throughout Minnesota.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Savannah Carlson, assistant director for communication.
