The Nominating Committee began its work in October of 2016 and met on December 15, 2016 at the Cathedral. The Committee was composed of clergy invited from every Deanery, laity serving in the major ministries of the Diocese and the diocesan ministry staff. With the insights that breadth of experience in the Diocese brings, the following slate of candidates has been offered, with the goal of providing the strongest possible leadership for the Diocese at this time. We ask that the delegates to convention please give their qualifications your prayerful consideration as you prepare for our annual synod on March 10-11, 2017.
