Nominations announced for president, vice-presidents

The names of nominees for Synod president and first through fifth vice-presidents who will be on the ballots for election at this summer’s LCMS convention have been announced.

Synod Secretary Dr. Raymond Hartwig released the names April 7.

The names on the ballots — five each for president and first vice-president, and 20 for second through fifth vice-presidents — are of those who received the most nominations from Synod congregations, and who agreed to stand for election.

All must be ordained ministers.

Following is the official notice regarding nominations for president and vice presidents:

These names will constitute the ballots for the July 10-17 convention of the Synod. The convention will have the right to alter these slates by amendment. According to Bylaw 3.12.1.3 (a), “[t]he amendment procedure shall include merely a motion, a second, and a vote on the amendment.” After all such amendments have been decided, the final slates of candidates will be ratified by the convention before voting takes place.

Delegates intending to make nominations from the floor for these offices must secure from the candidates whom they wish to nominate (1) prior written consent to serve if elected and (2) pertinent biographical information. Forms for this purpose may be requested from the Office of the Secretary of the Synod prior to the elections so that the required documentation will be available as needed.

    Is there a published list that reveals who each LCMS congregation nominated?

      No, that information has not been made public.

        Delegate 2007,
        Thank you. Do you know if it will ever be made public?

      • delegate2007 says:

        I don’t think it ever has been before, and I doubt it will ever be made known. You could ask for an “official” answer from the LCMS Secretary, Rev. Ray Hartwig.
