Elder Jim Micheff announced to the office staff that he and his wife had prayerfully accepted the invitation to become the next Michigan Conference president.
January 29, 2018
This morning Elder Jim Micheff accepted the invitation to serve as president of the Michigan Conference. He had been serving as the executive secretary of the Michigan Conference.
The process for selecting the new president in this context—as stated in the constitution—calls for the nominating committee from the past constituency to coordinate with the current executive committee, under the chairmanship of the Lake Union president. Elder Maurice Valentine presided over the meetings.
The committees met over two Sundays on January 21 and 28, to best assure sufficient time and a thoughtful, prayerful process. This past Sunday, the decision was made to extend an invitation to Elder Jim Micheff. As stated, he prayerfully accepted.
Elder Micheff entered the ministry as a pastor for the Rocky Mountain Conference in 1994. After several years, he accepted a call to pastor for the Michigan Conference in 1996. In 2000 he was invited to serve as director of the youth department and served in that capacity for about seven years. In 2007, he became the executive secretary for the Michigan Conference.
We thank God for His guidance and leading in the selection process, and we welcome our new president.
