URC General Secretary John Proctor has requested that this message from the WCC be shared as widely as possible.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
The deadline for applications for the position of Director of Faith and Order has been extended from 15 March till 28 April 2015. So far a good number of applications has been received, however, we have received only a few applications from member churches in the Global South and only one application from an Orthodox person and only one from a woman.
The General Secretary and the Commission on Faith and Order’s nominating group have, therefore, decided that the deadline for applications be extended to ensure a more balanced number of applicants.
The vacancy notice can be found on the WCC Website. I write to ask you to encourage potential candidates from your church to apply, and to pray that the Holy Spirit will lead us in our discerning for this process.
With prayers for your keeping of Holy Week and Easter.
Mr Georges Lemopoulos
Deputy General Secretary
