At the 2014 COCOP, or the The Coordination Committee for Cooperation between the ELCJHL and Overseas Partners, Church of Sweden member Erik Apelgårdh was elected as the new co-chair of the meeting, replacing Inken Wöhlbrand from The United Evangelical Lutheran Church of Germany (VELKD).
COCOP was started in 1978 with an aim to support the ELCJHL in its ministries. It has since turned into a partnership between the ELCJHL and its overseas partners, with voting members from all parties.
Thank you to Inken Wöhlbrand for her years of service as the co-chair for the annual COCOP meeting. As we say goodbye to Inken, we welcome Erik Apelgårdh as the new co-chair and look forward to many fruitful years together.
