    Selecting Conference Officers

    The plan first adopted in selecting conference officers was the same as was finally recommended in organizing churches. The organizer was to select a committee of two or three consecrated brethren of ability and good judgment, and they unitedly were to look over the membership list, meanwhile seeking wisdom from God as to who were best qualified to fill the offices of the church. These names were then nominated and brought before the church for consideration, the church-members either electing the persons nominated, or others, if in their judgment there were others better qualified. The same plan was pursued in selecting conference officers, save that the president named a committee of three to act aside from himself. As the work enlarged, and numbers increased the nominating committee usually consisted of five members instead of three.COOD 136.2
