General superintendent is the highest elected office within the Church of the Nazarene. Each of the six general superintendents is elected to a four-year term. The general superintendents’ primary responsibilities include providing supervision, guidance, and motivation for the general church; interpreting the law and doctrine of the Church of the Nazarene; having primary authority with regard to issues of theology, ordination, and mission strategy; and the nomination, appointment, or approval of candidates for various positions within the denomination, including missionary and district superintendent. For more, see paragraphs 317–324 of the Church of the Nazarene Manual.
