During the recent 2015 annual meeting in Vancouver, BC, Canada, the Pentecostal Charismatic Churches of North America (PCCNA) reaffirmed its original commitment to “demonstrate unity in the power of the Spirit” through racial reconciliation and kingdom collaboration. Members also united in a “Call to Charlotte,” a new evangelism initiative in partnership with the Billy Graham Library and the International Center for Spiritual Renewal.

PCCNA elected a new slate of officers: Chair Rev. Alton Garrison, Assistant General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God; Vice-chair (completing a term) 2nd Assistant Presiding Bishop Jerry Macklin, Church of God in Christ; Secretary Dr. Sterling Brackett, Vice President of Corporate Affairs at The Foursquare Church; and Treasurer (for another term) Rev. David Wells, General Superintendent of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.

PCCNA also elected Dr. Jeff Farmer (former president of Open Bible Churches) to serve in the newly formed office of president. Farmer has served as PCCNA chairman for the past
five years.

President Farmer said, “This action is a strategic stepping stone to PCCNA’s future and comes in the wake of five years of sustained membership and financial growth.”

Dr. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference; Dr. George Wood, General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God; and Dr. Mark Williams, General Overseer of the Church of God, were reelected as members-at-large to the executive committee.

PCCNA member organizations in the USA, Canada, and Mexico represent over 480,000 churches and nearly 90 million followers of Christ worldwide. The recent meeting attracted over 50 leaders from different denominations, church networks, mega-churches and para-church organizations.
