Four years ago, the Rev'd. Dr. John Bowling, President of Olivet Nazarene University, was elected to the episcopal office of General Superintendent in the Church of the Nazarene. - He responded by asking for some time to pray for discernment. - When he returned, he declined the position.
This year, Dr. Bowling was, once again, elected to the position of General Superintendent, and, once again, he asked to have the afternoon break to pray before giving an answer. - However, when during the evening session, Dr. Bowling accepted the office, sensing God nudging him in a new direction. Thus, John Bowling has become our denominations 39th General Superintendent. - May God's blessings be upon him!
One more to go!
