PORTLAND, OR (June 25, 2007) Delegates re-elected three executive ministers during the 122nd Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Covenant Church.

Gary Walter, executive minister of the Department of Church Growth and Evangelism, was elected to his third term. He was first elected to his position in 1999. The number of churches and membership has increased dramatically during his tenure.

Ruth Hill, executive minister of Women Ministries, was re-elected to her third term as well. She was first elected in 1999. Since her first election, Women Ministries has developed many projects, such as Advocacy for Victims of Abuse (AVA) and Educate the Girls in Congo, where she and husband, Brad, were missionaries for 19 years.

Curt Peterson, executive minister of the Department of World Mission, was elected to his second term. He was first elected in 2003. In March, he was caught up in crossfire between militia and government forces in Kinshasa, Congo, and nearly killed. The experience, he has said, made him even more determined to expand the department’s work.
