The Leadership Council is saddened to announce that Rev. R. Lawton Higgs, Sr is retiring from his role as Leadership Council Chair. Lawton has been an active member of the PCA for several years and has served as the Southeast Regional Servant Leader before serving as Leadership Council Chair for the last year and a half.
During Lawton’s tenure as chair, the Progressive Christian Alliance has finally reached it’s goal of becoming an official non-profit organization, getting IRS designation as a 501(c)3 organization, working towards becoming an endorsing body for chaplains, and revising the membership policies to create a stronger foundation for the organization.
We thank him for his service to the Progressive Christian Alliance and send him prayers for good health and wish him and his family well.
Rev. Gina Pond will be taking on the role of interim Council Chair, and more information will be forthcoming about Leadership Council elections.
The Leadership Council:
Rev. Gina Pond – Interim Chair
Rev. Beth Abbott – Co-chair
Rev. Fred-Allen Self – Secretary
Matthew Self – Treasurer
