Nominations for Elections 2017


Thank you for prayerful participating in our nomination process. We depend on you, guided by the Holy Spirit, to help our nomination committee to discern which names to put forward for election to offices in our diocesan leadership.

Included on this page is a list of the positions to be filled at the Synod delegates meeting, November 4, 2017. The Nominating Committee is requesting your recommendations for those best suited to fill the positions. Please use the online forms at right to nominate, or to consent to nomination.

The nomination process closes on September 15. Please remember, the names you submit are suggestions, not actual nominations. Please be certain that those suggested are actually eligible and willing to serve. Please ask your suggested nominees to visit the website and to fill out the consent forms there prior to September 15 to complete their nominations. The Nominating Committee will then choose a slate.


If you have any questions or would like to talk with the chairman of the Nominating Committee, please email Fr. Bill Midgett at
