She is also a development consultant serving both Kenyan and international organizations coordinating social action programmes for religious and civil society across Africa.Abuom was the Africa president for the WCC from 1999 to 2006. She has been associated with the All Africa Conference of Churches and WCC member churches in Africa. She is a co-president of the Religions for Peace and the National Council of Churches of Kenya.Abuom’s areas of work include economic justice, peace and reconciliation.Gennadios, who will serve his second term as the WCC Central Committee vice-moderator, is a professor of theology. He served as vice-moderator of the WCC’s Faith and Order Commission from 1998 to 2006. He was a staff member of the WCC’s Faith and Order secretariat in Geneva from 1983 to 1993. He is involved in a number of bilateral dialogues involving the Orthodox, the Roman Catholic and Lutheran churches among others.In addition to being vice-moderator of the WCC Central Committee, Gennadios has served as a member of the presidium and of the governing board of the Conference of European Churches.Swenson, who will also serve as the WCC Central Committee vice moderator, was ordained to the ministry by the Pacific Northwest Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church (UMC) in 1973. Swenson also served as senior pastor of First United Methodist Church, Wenatchee, Washington from 1989 to 1992. While a pastor in Wenatchee, she also served as president of both the Board of Directors of the Rape Crisis and Domestic Violence Center, and on the Board of Directors of the North Central Washington AIDS Coalition from 1989 to 1992.Swenson was elected to the episcopacy of the United Methodist Church by the 1992 Western Jurisdictional Conference. She now serves as president of the church’s General Commission on Christian Unity and Inter-religious Concerns (GCCUIC).Official website of the WCC 10th Assembly Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Albany, NY Rector Shreveport, LA Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Collierville, TN Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Women’s Ministry Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Smithfield, NC Submit an Event Listing Anglican Communion, Director of Music Morristown, NJ TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MIlast_img
