Linrud Resigns from Oregon Conference Presidency

Dan Linrud, Oregon Conference president, after much prayer, initiated an executive committee meeting in which he offered his resignation on Thursday, May 23, 2024. This action was accepted by the Oregon Conference executive committee.

The resignation is effective immediately and will initiate a four-month sabbatical for Linrud. Following his sabbatical, Linrud will be eligible to seek employment as a pastor within Oregon Conference, within North Pacific Union or elsewhere.

The search for a new Oregon Conference president will begin immediately, a process that will be facilitated by John Freedman, NPUC president.

In the interim, Kara Johnsson, Oregon Conference vice president for administration, will serve as the ranking leader in the absence of a president. All other conference personnel will maintain their current roles.

Oregon Conference is grateful to Linrud for his hard work and contributions to our ministry during his tenure here.
