The 2013 convention body passed a bylaw amendment to increase the number of directors on Foursquare’s board of directors from 20 to 25. This change will make it possible for all 14 districts to have board representation; prior to this change, only nine districts had directors on the board at any one time.
Corporate Secretary Sterling Brackett recently conducted elections, and the following five directors were chosen. They began their service on the board on Oct. 21.
Doug C. Andersen (Pacific Coast and Valleys District)
Doug Andersen is senior pastor of The Church On The Way Santa Clarita in Santa Clarita, Calif., which he planted in 2008. Doug has been a contributing writer for the Spirit-Filled Life Bible for Students and Pastors of Promise. He serves on the Pacific Coast and Valleys District council, as a member of the Foursquare cabinet, and on the Foursquare Foundation board.
Dave Edler (Northwest District)
Dave Edler has been leading Yakima Foursquare Church in Yakima, Wash., for over 14 years. He has planted two other churches in Yakima, Franklin Hill (Yakima Central Foursquare Church) and West Valley (Yakima West Foursquare Church). Dave studied at Washington State University and Fuller Seminary. He is a divisional superintendent and serves on the Northwest District advisory council.
Carrie L. Jenkins (Southeast District)
Carrie Jenkins has been a Foursquare credentialed minister for over 23 years. She and her husband, Dale, currently serve as lead pastors of New Hope Worship Center (Concord Foursquare Church) in Concord, N.C. They have faithfully served New Hope and the community for 20 years. Carrie began the J12 ministry at New Hope and established a leadership team that truly believes in “reaching a generation before it needs to be rescued.”

Prayer is appreciated for these new board members, for God to give them wisdom as they assume the responsibility of providing guidance for our church during this time of restructure and change.
