2017 Annual Meeting Wrap-up
Our Member Church delegates voted to elect three new Board Members recommended by the CCO Board Nominating Committee:
Many thanks to so many who attended our 2017 Annual Meeting on February 2, 2017!
Please join me in extending a warm welcome to these outstanding community leaders!
- Kris Callen, President
- Rev. David Kendrick, Vice President
- Rob Rector, Treasurer
- Cheryl Clay, Secretary
We also received a report about the success of our 2016 Compassion Campaign, reaching our fundraising goal of $1.6 million. The 2017 Compassion Campaign goal was also announced, and with your prayers, gifts, and service, we are aiming to reach a fundraising goal of $1.7 million.
Finally, with a theme built on the classic Christmas movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” we also explored the question: “What if the Council of Churches had never been born?” Of course, the Council of Churches would never have been born and grow these past 48 years without the vision, hard work, and generosity of our Member Churches! In the days to come, you’ll be able to access highlights from our 2017 Annual Meeting on our website at ccozarks.org.
“Our human compassion binds us
one to the other – not in pity or patronizingly,
but as human beings who have learned how
to turnour common suffering into hope
for the future.”
