UCG has the chance this spring to change the face of its organization with new blood and new ideas. The past several years have been a complete disaster under Vic Kubik's reign. From the COGWA defections with 1/2 of the ministers and over half of their members, epic media failures from hiding their beliefs on their web site to the recent personal campaigns that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and garnered one new church attendee, UCG's relevance has been shattered.
UCG has been operated by the same men who ran WCG before they conspired while on WCG payroll to form a new splinter group. They carried the same old business model of the WCG over to their new incarnation where the corruption continues. Its ht same old men doing the same abusive things they did while still in WCG.
Its 2016 in the 21st century. New ideas, new methods of advertising, and new ways of communication are changing the world we live in daily. UCG still seems to be in the 1986 mode that died with Herbert Armstrong. Will UCG finally pay attention to the younger men in the ranks? They have dumped millions of dollars into training these men and can't find much use for them so far.
With declining income and membership someone had better wake up to the sinking ship they are in right now.
UCG has kept it low profile, but remember that Victor Kubik’s 3-year term expires this spring. The COE should soon be voting to reelect him to an additional 3-year term (or to a shorter term); or begin a search for a new President.
It appears Victor Kubik feels confident enough that he will be reelected that he is already scheduling himself to give the national feast sermon as President this fall.UCG members are getting tired of Kubik's "holier than thou" attitude that the UCG cannot operate without him in control. The problem is that with the defection of COGWA ministers his opposition has basically been eliminated. Its the good old boys who could care less what the membership thinks.
Personally, I hadn’t forgotten that his 3-year term expires this spring, and like you, I figured that it meant very little – both based on the things he’s been saying that indicate that he sees himself as a fixture, as well as the fact that their jettison of the COGWAN ministry 5 years ago makes it very unlikely that this bunch will be voted from power anytime soon – because they eliminated most political opposition and most of the ministers they’ve installed are obligated to them.
