Conference of European Churches elects Protestant President

.

The Conference of European Churches (CEC), which is currently holding its General Assembly in Novi Sad, Serbia, has elected the President of the Reformed Church in Alsace and Lorraine (Eglise Protestante Réformée Alsace Lorraine), Reverend Christian Krieger, as its new President. Upon his election, Rev. Krieger, who is also the Vice President of both the Union of Protestant Churches in Alsace and Lorraine and the Protestant Federation of France, described his “primary goal” in office as strengthening the community of churches in Europe.

“The churches play a key role in generating understanding and collaboration across all national boundaries in Europe, which is what makes their overarching associations so important,” says the CPCE’s General Secretary Bishop Dr Michael Bünker, who is in Novi Sad to follow proceedings at the CEC’s General Assembly. “I congratulate Christian Krieger most sincerely on his election. May God bless his endeavours.”

Rev. Krieger will be representing his church as a delegate at the CPCE’s General Assembly in Basle, Switzerland, from 13 to 18 September.

Elected as Vice-Presidents were Metropolitan Cleopas Strongylis and the Right Reverend Dr Gulnar Francis-Dehqani.
