Are You Looking to Serve?

We are looking for people who reflect the diversity of Canadian Shield Regional Council, including but not limited to, cultural and ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, geography and age. We want to have good representation from racialized communities or other groups that traditionally have been marginalized in church decision-making. We seek people who can offer fresh perspectives and insights; those who bring knowledge and experience from being active in local communities. We need people who can see the big picture, people who are interested in innovative ministry, people who can help develop policies and people with a keen eye for details.  WE NEED YOU!

If you are interested in becoming involved in the church at a regional level but aren’t sure what is the right role for you, members of the Nominations Committee would be happy to have a conversation with you about your gifts and interests and help you to find the place that would be the best fit for you.

Proposal Process

Part of the Fall Regional Council meeting will be dedicated to considering and voting on proposals intended for action by either the Regional Council or by the General Council next summer.  Our sister region, Shining Waters, has prepared a video that outlines the proposal process for Regional Councils.  Please disregard the “Dates of Note” towards the end of the video as they pertain only to the Shining Waters Regional Council.
