Election for the Baptists Together President 2021-22
Further to our call for nominations for the position of Baptists Together President in 2021-22, and following the stipulations of our constitution, we have received two nominations and these are now offered for election.
We hope that all our churches will be keen to engage with this important decision. Please do prayerfully consider which candidate you believe should serve our Union as President. The question for discernment is 'Who is God calling to be the President of our Union in the coming season?'

The two candidates are (in alphabetical order):-
Geoff Colmer (nominated by the Central and East Midland Baptist Associations)
Alex Harris (nominated by the Heart of England and West of England Baptist Associations)
Each candidate has provided a short profile with information about the theme and focus they would wish to explore should they be successful:

To help with this process of discernment, we are planning to interview each of the candidates. These interviews will be available to watch on our website.
The dates for the interviews will be publicised as soon as possible.
We will be discerning using an electronic vote.
Information about how to participate has been sent to all ministers and church secretaries (by email, or by post where this is not possible).
Voting will close on 31 March, and we will announce our new Vice-President as soon as possible.
