Discernment & Nominations Committee

The leadership of our diocese is composed of elected and appointed positions across several boards and committees. The Nominations Committee seeks to identify and empower leaders to serve at the diocesan level.

There are a variety of leadership positions involved in the governance and programs of the Diocese. Some of these positions are elected by the delegates and clergy at the Annual Convention, some are appointed by the Bishop or other officials of the Convention. The Diocesan Discernment Committee exists to help recruit and discern good candidates for these positions.

The following are the elected or appointed positions in the diocese. If the bullet item is bolded, the Discernment Committee is actively seeking candidates and encourages applications!
