Members are elected for eight-year terms and five of the current council members are still serving those terms.

Elected to fill the council’s two open lay positions were N. Oswald Tweh, Sr., of the Liberian Conference in Africa, nominated by the Council of Bishops, and Beth Capen, New York Conference.
