The search committee for John Thomas' replacement as President of our denomination, the United Church of Christ, has recommended Geoffrey Black. Geoffrey is currently the New York Conference Minister and has held that post for nearly 10 years. Personally, I know Geoffrey and I cannot imagine a better choice to replace John Thomas. He's a great guy with a heart for the Gospel. To learn more about his great guy, follow this link and read up on him.
UCC bylaws require that Black's nomination be affirmed by a two-thirds majority of the Executive Council prior to his presentation to the General Synod for call by election.
