Item 1: The Presidential Election

The scheduled time for the presidential election this morning is 10:30 AM. That is a change from previous conventions – the first election was always after lunch. But all the elections will be today.

Ronnie Floyd is still the expected winner of the election, but there is a lot of Dennis Kim buzz around. Just don’t know it will all play out. As far as I know, there are still just the three who will be nominated.

I plan to update this post with news as the election progresses.

    Praying God’s will and a good convention. First choice for me would be Jared Moore and then Dr. Kim.

        I hope after Floyd’s term(s) Kim’s name comes up again. That would be outstanding.

        As I’ve noted several times, I think there were uniques for each candidate that made their candidacy both interesting and to a certain extent compelling. I’m not surprised that Jared polled so few, but there are things that he is saying that deserve discussion and I believe he has correctly raised those issues and sought to discuss them.

        This was a VERY good year for us with respect to the selection of a president because of these things (obligatory IMHO implied, but just in case you think you need one, there you go).

          I agree with everything you said Greg. I would have preferred Dr. Kim to have won, but all in all, I’m pleased with the strong showing he made today.

        Some were in the exhibit hall, some were at lunch, some will never attend any of the business sessions.

          if they are appointed messengers, don’t they have a moral (and spiritual) obligation to attend on behalf of those who sent them as representatives

          ???

          Is seems like that if your church sends you as a messenger to the convention it would be a dereliction of duty to not attend any of the business sessions and to not vote.

            You make a good point. I guess people see this differently. Personally I always attended the business because i wanted to keep up and have a voice. Some people say they go for the preaching, fellowship or whatever.

            I suppose the bottom line would be a pastor’s understanding with his church. If the church knows the attendance pattern of the pastor and is OK with it I suspect that would be their business.

    Clint Pressley was elected 1st VP without opposition. 2nd VP Was also Unopposed. I think the name was Hans Dilbeck or Bilbeck. Maybe someone has the name.
