The Diocese of South Carolina is divided into six deaneries: Beaufort, Charleston, West Charleston, Florence, Georgetown and Orangeburg. Each year, during the Diocesan Convention, a Dean is appointed by the Bishop and approved by the Convention to serve a one-year term. The Dean is to gather the clergy of that deanery at regular times to discuss issues of concern in the diocese and region, to strengthen collegiality and further the work of the Church. Deaneries are to meet at least two times a year, once to give input during the formation of the diocesan budget and at other times as deemed necessary.
