George O. Wood has been elected to the office of the General Superintendent of the General Council of the Assemblies of God
George Wood is a prince of a man who is not only well-educated, but sensible. In my experience in interacting with him not only in meetings but when I provided support on his computer (for some time he was the only executive to use one), he is considerate, a gentleman, and actually listens to the people around him, regardless of their status or stature. He understands missions, being the son of missionaries. He understands contemporary culture, and he is one of the smartest men I’ve ever met — next to Rich Hammar.
Plus he’s really one of the best preachers I’ve ever listened to. And he’s a biblical preacher, not something most of the elder statesmen in our Fellowship have a good track record of.
Here’s to hoping he ushers in a new era of change for the A/G.
