The Foursquare cabinet announced that Tammy Dunahoo and Randy Remington are the 2019 presidential candidates. An election will be held during Foursquare Connection 2019 in Nashville, Tenn., where the new leader for The Foursquare Church will be determined and announced.
Tammy Dunahoo currently serves as the general supervisor and vice president of U.S. operations for The Foursquare Church, a role she has held since 2009. Tammy has served in local and national Foursquare ministry since joining the movement over 25 years ago. She earned her Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership at George Fox University in 2018 and is currently enrolled in the Doctor of Ministry in Leadership with Global Perspectives program at George Fox University, and anticipates completing her degree in April 2021. Tammy is married to Gary, and they have two adult children.
Randy Remington currently serves as the lead pastor of Beaverton Foursquare Church in Beaverton, Ore., a role he has held since 2003. Randy’s journey with Foursquare began 30 years ago. He has served at five Foursquare churches, on the Presidential Task Force and as a missionary to Jamaica, in addition to serving in multiple regional leadership roles. Randy earned his Master of Arts in Strategic Leadership from Life Pacific College in 2016. Randy is married to Sandy, and they have three adult children.
The next president will begin shadowing current president Glenn Burris Jr. as the new president-elect as early as September 2019; they will then be officially installed as president on Sept. 1, 2020. The year will allow the candidate to train, transition and plan.
Before the final candidates were chosen, Glenn said: “Nothing would be more fulfilling to me personally and to our movement than a successful transition to the future God has spoken over The Foursquare Church.”
Full bios and video interviews with the candidates will be available at 4sq.ca/election2019 in English and Spanish on Friday, March 22. For those who cannot attend convention or prefer to absentee vote, absentee ballot requests can be made beginning April 2; an email will be sent on that date with information on how to request an absentee ballot. In addition, Corporate Secretary-COO Adam Davidson will mail instructions to the homes of all credentialed ministers.
