Synod 2012 approved a process for seeking and appointing a new executive director of the Christian Reformed Church.
Synod directed the Board of Trustees to form a search committee with the goal of presenting a nominee to Synod 2013. The nine-member search committee will include three members of the Board of Trustees, two members of the Reviewing Structure and Culture task force, and four members of the CRCNA.
The search committee is to begin its work as soon as possible.
Rev. Joel Boot, current executive director, was originally appointed to a two-year term that was supposed to end in 2013. However, synod extended his appointment by one year to serve as a counselor to the new executive director.
Rev. Michael Winnowski, Classis Wisconsin, told synod, “Joel Boot agreed to this because we are holding his grandchildren for ransom.”
