The announcement of the search for a transitional general secretary coincides with the formation during the NCC Executive Committee meeting February 23-24 of a task force “to re-envision and restructure” the Council. This Task Force will facilitate a coordinated effort among NCC leaders, Governing Board members, and staff to provide clarity of mission, and to develop and implement an organizational structure that is better suited to the unique challenges of today's ecumenical landscape.
"This re-envisioning process is already marked by significant ownership of the Governing Board and staff,” said NCC President Kathryn M. Lohre. “Together we are committed to streamlining the Council while retaining our historic commitment to responding to Christ's call to visible unity with peace and justice.”
The transitional general secretary will be expected to work with board and staff to transform the NCC mission and oversee funds development. "Special skills in addressing institutional racism and working with diverse constituencies are required," Lohre said.
