Trivia Question: Day 10

May 3, 2012

Trivia Question: Day 10

Every day of General Conference we will offer a trivia question about the GC.  If you have a guess or know the answer submit it as a comment.  We’ll draw a winner from all the correct answers time stamped for the day the question was posted.  Winners will be contacted at the end of GC to receive their prize.  Stop back every day for the previous day’s answer.

Yesterday:  Two volunteers with a Wisconsin connection will be returning as pages. They have served multiple times. Who are they, and how many times have they served?  Jerry Lipka – seventh consecutive GC; he first served at the 1984 Baltimore GC.  Mary Beth Byrne – third consecutive GC; she first served in 2004 at Pittsburgh. 

Today:  Who is the current Secretary of the General Conference and what is his occupation?

Bonus!!!!  Who were his two immediate predecessors?

    Trivia: Rev. Fitzgerald “Gere” Reist II, UM pastor

    Not trivia: GenConf rejects change in language around sexuality. Not helpful, hopeful, or grace-full.

    Fitzgerald “Gere” Reist is Secretary of the General Conference. He is a UM Pastor from Pennsylvania. Carolyn Marshall from Indiana was his immediate predecessor. I have no Idea who preceded Carolyn Marshall, because she held the position for a very long time – several quadrennia.
