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.

    Canadian Shield Regional Council is strengthened by involving a diversity of voices in its leadership. As we strive to become an intercultural and diverse church, it is helpful if we know some of the ways that members identify. Note that answering some of these questions is voluntary.
  • Please indicate the name of your community of faith and include the city or town where it is located i.e. Trinity UC - Thunder Bay.
  • Gifts and Experience

    It will be very helpful for the Nominations Committee to know a bit of the background and skills of the person being nominated.

    - A statement about why you think the nominee is the right person to serve;

    - The gifts and experiences your nominee brings that would fit this role well;
