Introduction

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

The nomination process closes on September 15th. 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 the deadline in order to complete their nominations.
