New Presidium for the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe: 
Gottfried Locher re-elected and joined by Miriam Rose and John Bradbury

Freshly elected by the General Assembly of the CPCE in Basle, the incoming Council elected a new Presidium and welcomed the new General Secretary during its inaugural meeting on 17 September 2018. The tripartite Presidium consists of Miriam Rose, John Bradbury and Gottfried Locher, with Locher appointed to the position of Executive President.

Dr John Bradbury is a minister of the United Reformed Church in the UK. He was already a proxy member of the Council during the previous period of office.

Dr Gottfried Locher has been the President of the Council of the Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches since 2011. He became a member of the Presidium in 2012 and assumed the role of Executive President in 2015 following the unexpected death of Bishop Dr Friedrich Weber.

Dr Miriam Rose has been the Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Jena since 2011.

The Presidium welcomed the new General Secretary of the CPCE, Dr Mario Fischer, a pastor of the Evangelical Church in Hesse and Nassau (EKHN) and until now the manager of the CPCE’s head office. Dr Fischer will assume office after the General Assembly. The departing General Secretary, Dr Michael Bünker, Bishop of the Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Austria, who has held office since 2007, will be entering retirement in 2019. The head office of the CPCE is permanently located in Vienna.
