[I was curious to see how the last of the 35 district conventions was going, so I went to the CID website and noticed this news, dated today. Besides the election news, you can find resolutions that have been passed as well. CH]
Election of CID President
The first election of the convention was for District President. The four nominees were Rev. David Bueltmann (incumbent), Rev. Mark Miller, Rev. Dr. Daniel Olson, and Rev. Donald Pritchard. After a third ballot, a majority was attained. The Rev. Mark A. Miller (pictured right) was elected as the 16th President of the Central Illinois District.
A standing ovation was given in thanks for Rev. Bueltmann’s many years of service. To God be the Glory.
