Carmen Fowler LaBerge, president of the Presbyterian Lay Committee, was recently elected to the board of the National Association of Evangelicals. The election took place during the fall meetings of the board, held in Washington D.C.
LaBerge was in attendance on Thursday, Oct. 16 when the board heard the recommendation and made the decision to appoint her.
“I feel honored to be invited to serve alongside such esteemed colleagues in the NAE,” LaBerge said. “It is my hope that my participation can help bridge some of the divides that naturally exist among church and parachurch ministries, as well as historic divisions between former mainline Christians and the wider evangelical church.”
L. Roy Taylor, NAE Board Chair and Stated Clerk of the Presbyterian Church in America, had this to say about the election of LaBerge: “Carmen Fowler LaBerge of the Presbyterian Lay Committee is a welcomed addition to the Board of Directors of the National Association of Evangelicals. She brings with her a wealth of experience, leadership, and expertise, along with a number of network connections with evangelical Presbyterians in several Presbyterian denominations and other evangelicals beyond the Presbyterian-Reformed family. We are delighted to have her join the NAE Board!”
The National Association of Evangelicals mission is to promote “cooperation without compromise.” Its origins date back to 1942 and it currently represents more than 45,000 local churches from 40 different denominations. More information about the NAE can be found at their web site: www.nae.net.
The mission of the Presbyterian Lay Committee is to inform and equip Christians to share the Biblical faith by proclaiming Jesus Christ alone as: The Way of salvation, the Truth of God’s Word, and the Life of discipleship.
