The 15-member Executive Board is made up of people of diverse ages, gender, geographical location, race and occupation.
There are preachers and church workers; professors, teachers and educational administrators; retired people; people whose racial characteristics are Asian, African-American, Caucasian, Hispanic and Native American (with one-third of the members coming from other than Caucasian peoples); people who live in places ranging from Oregon to rural Iowa to Florida.
This group of people has been intentionally selected so that the Executive Board would contain a broad spiritual and experiential base and so that the Board would have a diversity of viewpoints. Board members understand that they need to consider and represent the church as a whole and the broad spectrum of people.
