The Very Rev. Craige BorrettThe Task Force for Provincial Affiliation was formed to design and initiate a process whose goal will be to enable the Diocese and this Convention, along with their parishes, to discern among the options available for provincial affiliation, and in Convention, decide our means of affiliation.

Goal: to explore this matter and report back to Standing Committee and Diocesan Council as well as to the Diocesan Convention itself by early 2015.  Bishop Mark Lawrence has appointed one priest and one lay representative from every deanery to serve on this Task Force:

•    The Very Reverend Craige Borrett, Chairman  & clergy representative from W. Charleston Deanery (Diocesan Council) (pictured left)
•    Mr. Bruce McDonald lay representative from W. Charleston Deanery (Diocesan Council)
•    The Very Reverend Peet Dickinson, from Charleston Deanery, ( Diocesan Council)
•    Mrs. Boo Pennewill , lay representative from Charleston Deanery (Standing Committee)
•    The Reverend Tripp Jeffords from Georgetown Deanery (Standing Committee)
•    Mr. John Benson lay representative from Georgetown Deanery
•    The Reverend Jeffrey Miller, from Beaufort Deanery
•    Mrs. Karen Kusko lay representative from Beaufort Deanery (Standing Committee)
•    The Very Reverend Ken Weldon, from Florence Deanery (Standing Committee)
•    The Reverend John Foster, Florence—representative from Florence Deanery and the Diaconal Order
•    The Very Reverend David Thurlow, from Orangeburg Deanery (Diocesan Council)
•    Mr. Julius (Pinckney) Thompson, lay representative from Orangeburg Deanery

The Task Force for Provincial Affliation was formed following the passage of resolution R-2 at the 223rd Diocesan Convention held in March of 2014.
