2022 APCE Officer Election Announcement

We are pleased to announce that the Rev. Kathryn Campbell has been elected by the Leadership Council of APCE to serve as President Elect beginning in 2022.

We are also pleased to announce that the Rev. Gord Brown of the Presbyterian Church in Canada has been elected by the Leadership Council of APCE to serve as APCE Secretary for three years beginning in 2022.

MEET YOUR NEWLY ELECTED OFFICERS

Since March 2020, we have been learning how to participate in faith formation during a pandemic.
We have abandoned some things, adapted others, created new things.
We have wrestled with technology.
We have grieved losses.
We have celebrated new successes.
And we may have even redefined success,
As we have followed that great tradition of creating and adapting the ways we go about faith formation.

Now as we emerge from the pandemic, we are called to explore and think about faith formation for the coming months and years.
Our aim may be the same as it was pre-pandemic.
But we and our faith communities are not the same.
We most likely cannot go back to doing things just like we did.

So, at the invitation of Association of Presbyterian Church Educators (APCE) and the Office of Christian Formation in the Presbyterian Mission Agency (PMA), we have been called to create
Post Pandemic Pondering and Planning – A Resource for Faith Re-Formation.

We have created it to help as you ponder and evaluate how your faith communities will go about faith formation in the future.
