Moderator reports on PNC search and board actions

By Indigo Brown, Moderator and Esther Sanders, Vice Moderator

 Here is what going on in the conference. The Board is meeting on the first Tuesdays of every month. We will have a retreat in early November to discuss the state of the conference and to do some team building. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.

The Intentional Interim Conference Minister Search Committee began the search in July. They have been hard at work looking at a second round of applicants after the first set felt led by the Holy Spirit to go a different direction.

It is reassuring that Jonna Jensen is willing to continue as acting conference minister, working remotely from Iowa.

We look forward to what God is doing in this process. We are grateful to Lee Albertson, on the national level, who is guiding us. We are grateful to the entire Conference for prayers, support, and patience in this time.

Annual meeting 2024 meeting date has been set for April 26 to 28. The Annual Meeting Committee is currently looking for a meeting space and we hope to announce that soon.

The Justice and Witness Ministry and Outdoor Ministry committees have started back up and are in the process of finding members, creating guidelines, and finding regular meeting times.

Those interested in being involved may contact Jenn Hagedorn  for the Justice Witness Ministry Committee at or Leah Atkinson Bilinski  for the Outdoor Ministry Committee at

N-Sid-Sen seeks volunteers to share their time, talent, or treasure. Those interested may contact Pam Peterson at

As we enter this time of autumn let us reach out to one another. This can be a hard time of year for us all and we want to create a community where everyone feels truly cared for. John 13:34.
